Do I have exzema?

Lawrence, KS

#1 Oct 4, 2012

I've had red, itchy, scaly patches of skin under both my eyes for a couple years now. It started on the right side of my face and eventually hopped over my nose. That picture is how it looks 10-15 minutes after washing my face with an oil-free, sensitive-skin, whatever else face wash. The scales go away after I moisturize, but they're usually back by the end of the day.

I have very little knowledge on skin issues, but I believe I have some form of eczema. Should I see a dermatologist? This is not ruining my life, but it can be extremely irritating. Thank you, everybody!
