Red pimples on and around eyelids

Hi everyone, hope everyone's enjoying the 'autumnal' downpours!

My 1 yo for the last week or so has been getting tiny red spots on her eyelids and underneath her eyes. I think it might be eczema (she has suffered from this elsewhere on her body since she was tiny and we control it with 50/50) but I'm not sure. Every time I think 'right, that's it, doc's appointment!', it seems to disappear and she looks fine again. It comes and goes.

Has anyone else's baby had this? It's not really bothering her I don't think - she rubs her eyes when she is tired and this makes it worse, but other than that she doesn't really notice it. I've tried moisturising but it doesn't seem to have made much difference.

Would appreciate thoughts/ comments.
