Does anyone have setbacks with the Blepharitis and the Wetones?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I've been using the wet ones every day and seem to have been making progress, but yesterday I decided to start using hairspray again. Within say an hour my eyes were burning, itchy and gookey.  Looks like the hairspray has to go.  I hope this hasn't set me way back.  This condition is so discouraging.  Dena

    Only yesterday there was an artical in the newspaper linking women's make-up ( isn't all make up ! ) especially eye-liner , to infections in eyes . Said something about re-sharpening the tool point to keep a clean surface . ( I personally have no idea as to what they mean , but no doubt ladies will ! )

    Might pay to hold onto a can for a list of it's ingrediants . There could be a link ?

      Thanks David for the comment.  They were talking about a wooden eye liner pencil.  I threw all mine away and now use eyeshadow for liner.  I use a q-tip to apply to each eye separately.  Dena

    Hair spray in eyes? I've never heard this 
    • Posted

      Many "unnatural" airborne chemicals/elements will either make eyes sting or over come them with the feeling of  dryness .

      Weird as it is , i only have to eat something sharp in taste , especially an apple , and my eyes dry-out within minutes ! Can anyone explain that one !

      Well yesterday i enjoyed a whole dry blepth symptoms free . Hoping to string together a few more consecutive days of the same .
