After scaling a seborrheic keratosis one typically uses Vaseline to help reduce scarring. It is uncomfortable when it goes into the eye. which may happen when the scaling was near (< 3 mm) the eye.

Is there a substitute ointment that will be less uncomfortable when used near the eye?

Thanks Ray Butterworth and Carey Gregory for helping rephrase the question. Note for potential close voters: this is a quite general question for improving the treatment of patients going through scaling a seborrheic keratosis located near their eye. It is not a personal medical advice but instead is a generic question how to optimize a very common treatment.
