Question: Would Tobradex be indicated for red,flaky skin around the eye between the eye brow and eye lid on the inner corner ,area about 1 inch irregular.My regular Dr perscribe Blethamide but drugstores couldn't fill it and my insurance wouldn't cover it. I was sent a letter from Blue Cross -Shield to be perscribe Tobradex or Lotemax.I looked them up they seem to be for red infections in the eye or after surgery.What could I use for red flaky skin around the eye?
