Ok so I didnt have any symptoms for almost 2 weeks now and now it has come back also broke out really bad in places I have never broken out before for example my forehead and left cheek and I believe it's somewhat related to the blepharitis. Any tips you guys can give me? I've gone to my physician, eye doctor etc and they just take it like it's something normal. I'm really irritated since I cant wear makeup since now my face looks like a mess.I wasnt washing my eyes at all or cleaning them and they felt great until this afternoon when I did a hot compress and it came back. Should I just not do nothing to my eyes or do I keep going with my eyelid scrubs and hot compresses? or any other remedies? I heard tea tree oil is good to treat blepharitis. Thanks

In a previous entry I mentioned a link to a good read with regard to the subject of the bacteria's life cycle and it featured a highly magnified picture of the bacteria that seek to live and reproduce in your eyes' glands .
it is SO important that the gland openings are the center of attention . that is where the "bugs" enjoy life and breed . The lower lids i find easy to wash with a very wet cotton bud soaked in bleph' solution . This should dissolve the blockages in the gland openings and allow the oils to flow as intended . Be gentle though as the last thing you want is stinging sore eyelids ! the upper eye lids gland opening areas i don't manage to do as well .
Top tip at night , before applying the lacrilube give your lashes a good washing/ dampening with the bleth cleaner immediately before applying the lacrilube . that way it doesn't stick to the lashes as much , you feel less " tacky" and it cleans off easier in the morning .
if you suffer from dry skin apply a TINY amount of Cetraben on the dry areas but ensure that you stop short of being too close to the eye lids as it's thought that oily substances can be attractive to bleph .
It's crazy bad when I have it. So I use Wet Ones bought at walmart in USA. Vaseline around eyes pataday allergy eye drops . No Idea what works. The heat pack last episode did nothing so I used ice after the heat it felt good but did nothing.
The tea tree oil I love for many things but so close to your eyes that could sting like heck!
I'm Hoping its related to allergies and there will be a cure but it's going to take a month for all this testing to be over because I work and have little time to do this. Allergy appt took 2 hours!!! The next one they said 3 hours!
My friend who killed the Blepharitis with an Avon Facial Scrub with Benzethonium Chlorid in it had her Blepharitis moving up onto to her skin. She had it in the area where you wear eyeshadow. She wore sunglasses all the time.
I saw what she had when I looked online at the different Blepharitis pictures. I had the terrible itching as my symptom.
I used the antibacterial handwipes called Wet Ones with Benzethonium Chloride in them to kill my Blepharitis. I have posted on the site how I did it.
Hope this helps you,
