Small red spots below eyelid. Polysporin, neosprin did not help. How to remove spots?

I have a small red spot right beneath my right lower eyelid. It has been there several weeks. It does not cause any pain, there is no swelling, itching or flakiness. It is just there and won't go away. I tried Polysporin and Neosporin and it did not help at all. My PCP prescribed a steroid ointment and that has not helped. Any suggestions ?

Hi..
Thanks for the query..
It could have been a mole with less pigmentation..
Consult a doctor to know whether it is of any significance..
If it is infectious you can use some antibiotic cream..
If it a mole it doesn't require any treatment...Take care..
