This all started with a dry patch on the corner of my left eye in January . The dry patch had slowly over weeks grown on my eyelid and in May I started to experience flare ups. I self diagnosed with Blepharitis and started reading here about how people treated their symptoms. However, the only thing I experience with this is just dryness and inflammation. I do not wear make up as of 2 weeks and the swelling has gone down tremendously due to warm compressions that I was recommended to do by my eye doctor. He told me to do these compressions two times a day for 8 weeks because it’s really hard to get the inflammation down. That’s all he told me to do.. so I’m just confused because I don’t experience any pain or itchiness on my eyelid. I don’t even have any dandruff on my eyelashes. The only thing I do experience is just dryness but I put a lot of petroleum and jelly on it. However, I did have one stye on my lower eyelid for like 2 days , and then another one after the 2 days that also went away and a tiny tiny inflammation you can barely see on the right eye but it hasn’t expanded. Does anyone else experience this kind of Blepharitis? It looks to me that this symptom is different depending on its origin.
Also, is this really chronic? Because I read that some people were saying that it’s not really chronic but it can be chronic.
I guess I’m just confused because when I self diagnosed at first with the dry patches I thought it was dermatitis but this problem has been going on for 3 months now due to an inflammation. I don’t know if I should also apply eye cream that’s for dermatitis as well? Due to dryness. I’m interested to find out what you guys do with your eyelashes because my eyelashes are very weak and have been falling off like crazy.
I’ll share my routine if anyone is interested:
I do warm compressions on both eyes with a towel in the morning and then I put petroleum and jelly on my eye. I consume lots of water throughout the day. Then, by the end of the day before I start my second warm compressions I put Manuka Honey on my eyelid (not diluted) for about 25 minutes and also all over my face because of my acne. Then I wash everything off and put my face wash, I do the warm compression and then apply castor oil by my upper and lower lashes due to my eyelashes falling off. I apply coconut oil and pretroleum and jelly to really nourish my skin due to the dryness.
