Scab

Question: I have a scab under my eye that won't heal. It was never a cut, pimple, or open wound of any kind so I don't see how a scab formed to begin with. It kind of just appeared and now it won't go away. I have been putting Cetaphil moisturizing lotion on it but it doesn't seem to help. Any thoughts or recommendations? Thank you for your time.
Answer:

It seems strange to me that it just appeared, it may have been a bug bite or something that happened while you were sleeping. It’s hard to say what to use, not knowing the cause, my best recommendation is to see a doctor or dermatologist in person so that they may have a visual and then prescribe something for treatment. Sorry I could not be more helpful. Best skin care wishes.
