Hi,

It may be peri orbital dermatitis induced by dry skin and some allergens or irritants.. You may be visiting the dermatologist for the scalp psoriasis. When you you visit him, show the new lesions developed around eyes. I would recommend you to apply mild steroid cream like mometasone cream. And take oral steroid in tapering dose for few weeks. Avoid contact with soap.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilyas Patel, Dermatologist
