What causes cheek bone inflammation and irritation?

I have an area on my cheekbone, just below the corner of my left eye, which becomes periodically inflamed. The area is always the same. With a diameter somewhat less than a dime. The inflammation is very infrequent. Three times a year or less, with no seasonality that I can discern. When it happens it is almost like several small acne bumps all next to one another, but under the surface. Not visible. It s just reddish to the eye, and somewhat swollen and painful to the touch. I tried acne creams when I first noticed this 10 years ago or so. That made it much worse. Since then I ve tried moisturizers, keeping it very clean / no irritants. I don t understand why it s always the same irritation and always on my right cheek bone. I ve Googled like crazy and can t find anything like it. I also have some other chronic skin issues, which seem to be allergies -- chronic rashes on my lower legs. But those are different in character and seem unrelated. Any thoughts?
