Hi Doctor,

I have been getting this dry skin problem below my eyes and sometimes on my ears from last 4 to 5 months. I have consulted with doctors he said me to apply some coconut oil first time it did work and said me to apply a cream called Facibet; but it seems to be appearing again please suggest me to get rid of these permanently.

Thanks for writing to us.
This dry skin problem could be due to atopy or seborrheic dermatitis.
To treat the same, you may require a mild steroid cream for few days ( hydrocortisone or fluticasone). Once the dryness subsides, stop using it. Also use a mild moisturiser like cetaphil to keep the area well hydrated to prevent further recurrence
Hope that answers your query. Should there be more query, I would be happy to help you further.
