I am a 52 year old male with type II diabetes. For the past few weeks, I have had extremely dry skin around my eyes, particularly on the corners and on my eyelids. Lotions tend to make my skin red rather than resolve my issue. When the lotion dries, it cracks and peels again. The problem started about the same time as my cat scratched my shoulder (picture attached). The scratch turned into a patch of red skin that has slowly spread despite the use of Hydrocortisone USP 2.5% cream.
