I've had a red mark under my eye

Patient : I've had a red mark under my eye for about a month now. It's red, somewhat dry and appears to have tiny red bumps inside the redness. It started from a tiny pale red dot and has expanded since thdn. It's still relatively small. It's rarely ever itchy but sometimes it does get a little itchy. Sometimes it gives me a slight burning type of feel... mildly though. It's not a coldsore as far as I can tell.
