Can blepharitis cause under eye bags/swelling/dark circles?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I was diagnosed with blepharitis last november, however in the last 2 months I have had really noticable under eye bags that has came out of nowhere. I have not changed anything in my routine so could this possibly be related to my eye problems? I also have redness in my eyes. When they say blepharitis is inflammation of the eyelid do they mean the upper eyelid or bottom aswell? My upper eyelids are not swollen only under my eyes. How do i treat this?

    Bleph can affect upper lids,lower or both. In the beginning my eyes were swollen under the eyes. Main thing is keep that area free of oil. Clean well with just plain cool water helped me.

    Yeah my under eyes seem oily and noticeably more swollen. I am thinking of getting fillers under my eyes because it is making me look so bad. Im a male and don't have any idea on how to use make up etc.
