Brief Answer: This can be lacrimalsac related/allergic skin rash Detailed Answer: Hello Welcome to Health care magic Iam Dr. Dadapeer K, an Ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye. I saw the photo attached with the question, the rash is a localized rash near the medial canthus of the right eye. This can be related to inflammation of conjunctiva or lacrimal sac or from the skin as a result of allergy. Please let me know if there is any history of discharge and redness of the eyes as this indicates conjunctivitis. Please let me know any history of watering from the eyes and redness, pain as this indicates lacrimal sac swelling. If yes treatment is by use of antibiotic eye drops. Please let me know if there is any history of insect bite or associated itching which indicates skin rash. The treatment is by using antiallergic ointments. Please do answer the above questions so that I can guide you regarding further treatment. Thank you
