Clear liquid oozing from forehead, irritated. What could this be?

Dr. Prasad, I played basketball about 5 hours ago and am now just relaxing on the couch and felt something dripping down my forehead . The first few times i wiped it away thinking it was just water or something dripped on me but after it kept coming back, I went to check it out in the mirror. I noticed a clear liquid that looked like sweat forming in a dime sized spot on the middle right side of my forehead. It is still forming and seems a little irritated now but I am not sure if that is because i have been holding tissue paper against it to stop it. what could this be?

Thanks for the query,

You might have developed an eczema.

It is an allergic reaction to any antigen,

You have to try and notice whether you came in contact with a particular thing,

Or you have applied any new thing on scalp.

Apply a mild steroid lotion like desonide,

Also take an antihistamine tablet.

This will give you some relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
