I would be pleased to answer your question .
I would suggest you NOT to apply a steroid around the eye . Flutivate is a steroid and can be associated with certain side effects.
I would suggest you to apply a non steroidal approach called Pimecrolimus
( Elidel) which you would get by prescription from your GP .
This cream helps in reducing the underlying inflammation which is resulting in the scaling that you are complaining about .
Common causes of dryness around the eye area: Atopic Dermatitis
, Allergic Contact Dermatitis
, Seborrheic Dermatitis , Psoriasis
You can visit another Dermatologist
to determine what exactly is the cause of the condition and definitely AVOID a steroid around the eye.
