Thanks for your query.

I agree with you in considering the fact that the lesion could probably be a fungal infection.The symptoms are typical here.

You can apply Micanazole antifungal cream over the affected area, you can use the same to the lesion over the eyelid.If its a fungal infection as we suspected it will surely show good changes within a week of cream application.

Apply the cream after through washing the affected area.

Do mail me the images of the lesion to YYYY@YYYY , I shall have a look and advice you better.

are you sure this can be used over the eye?
Answered by Dr. Raju A.T 5 minutes later

Yes, it can be applied on any type of skin.

But do take care that it does not get instilled into the eye as it is not a ophthalmic preparation.Though its not XXXXXXX , the base in the ointment may irritate the eyes.

You can use Neosporin ophthalmic ointment to the lesion under the lid to be on safer side.

Wish you good health.
