Stop using cortisone around your eye area unless directed by an ophthalmologist. Cortisone is a steroid and can be potentially very damaging to your vision. Any type steroid medication being used in or near your eye area must be monitored by an ophthalmologist. I have chronic blepharitis and meibomitis which have been treated with prescription opthalmologmic steroid creams and drops which always comes with a lengthy warning from my doc about the risks of using steroids near or in the eye.

My boyfriend gets these exact red dots around his eye area. He gets them to disappear by using my over the counter eye lid scrub by theratears. He doesnt practice good eyelid hygiene and is always touching or rubbing his eye area. He is also scratching his head frequently due to his bad fungal dandruff which he sees a dermatologist for and she prescribes a prescription strength ketoconazole shampoo to use in his hair and on his face but not around his eye area. I assumed he was getting the fungus around his eye area since he goes from scratching his head to rubbing his eyes. He also is getting bacteria in the area when he rubs them. The red bumps have never been present when he saw the dermatologist. I think he may have periocular dermatitis but I am not a doctor.

Try using an eye lid scrub for a week and see if it improves. If you cant find an eyelid scrub then use Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo. Also avoid touching or rubbing your eye area unless you are doing an cleansing the area. If no improvement, go see an ophthalmologist or dermatologist. Dont hesitate when it comes to anything involving your eye area.
