This answer was rated:

Hi I've noticed some red dots around my eyes not sure what they are, no doctors appointments are available & google is saying all sorts so just wondering if you would have any idea what they are?
Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the dots better or worse?
Customer: I've been bad the past few days they only came up on my eyes today & when I google it's came up as epetichia something like that but I wasn't sure.
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No there's nothing.

Hopefully you can see them.

Got it--hold on please

Do those itch?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
A little bit yeah but not too bad

They aren't petechiae and nothing at all serious here

It's a mild allergic dermatitis--sometimes from new soaps or detergents but many times the trigger can't be determined

You can use over the counter topical hydrocortisone cream applied twice a day and a daily oral Claritin or Zyrtec for five days to clear this up

I'd advise no makeup/eye shadow until it clears

Please let me know if you need any more information
