Brief Answer:
Allergic reaction.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the follow up.
It is looking like an allergic reaction in the peri occular region.
I treat such cases with a mild steroid cream like cortisone to be applied in night and sunscreen in day.
These medication are available over the counter and are safe as well as effective.
You can try this.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.

Avoid benzoyl peroxide

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Your skin appears to be very sensitive.
Benzoyl peroxide is an irritant better avoid that.
Use cortisone cream for a week and after that you can use melaglow cream in night and a sunscreen in morning.
This should help you.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
