Check the actual rubber headlight seal that runs between the headlight assembly and the body. Those dry rot and allow moisture to get it. It is very cheap to replace but it doesn't take long with a broken seal to start oxidation on the inside. Once the oxidation begins, as far as I know the only reasonable option is to replace the entire headlight assembly which is very high.
