Rash on the corner of eye, temporary relief with medicines, taking medicines for high BP. Cause of symptoms?

I have a rash that has developed at the very corner of my left eye. I am a 42 year old female. My doctor thought it could possibly be yeast which caused eczema . He prescribed a hydrocortisone cream which included nystatin . The rash disappears; however, it reappears after approximately 3 days of not using the cream. I am also on lisinopril/hctz for high blood pressure, but I have been taking this medication for at least 3 years. Do you have any ideas of what could be taking place? Thanks.

Dermatologist 's  Response

It seems that you are having allergic contact dermatitis.

You may be having atopic diathesis.

The cause may be dust, fume, grass, cosmetics, deodorants, soap,clothes...etc.

Even drugs or food might be the causing factor.

Be calm and cool..

Antihistaminics might improve the disease.

If the disease is severe , steroids may be taken...

Mild steroid cream or tacrolimus oint or pimecrolimus cream may improve the disease.

You might become freeof disease.
