6 month old has a eyelid rash on right eye. Tried topical cream, no help. Any opinions ?

My 6 mo old daughter has a eyelid rash on her right eye mainly, even though both eyes have dark circles under them. We have tried perscribed topical creams and childrens allergy meds... So now we believed it maybe from soy formula use. She has been on soy for the past 4 months due to what seemed like cows milk sensivity, now we are back on regular formula for a week with our docs guidence. We are still not sure what is causing it and have considered everything from seasonal allergies to mold and mildew or cat allergy. Our current doc seems to think a dermatogist won t help a infant so feel stuck. Any other opions?
