My upper eyelid outer area is inflamed. Feels like its burning. Seems like an allergy. Many of you here take antihistamine but my eye doctor INSISTS that antihistamine dries out eyes. She refuses to prescribe it. I am willing to try some over the counter but I don't know which one. Also may be cold compress would help.

Hi, antihistamines can make your eyes dry which won't help most of us. However you have to weigh up your symptoms.. the itchiness gets so bad for me it's worth having drier eyes and no itch.
I am in. A huge group on Facebook called blepharitis support - almost 2000 people in the group and it has helped me a lot. I currently use tea tree oil (watered down) -'s manuka honey to help itching (and anti histamines when I'm desperate xx
Recommendation to look at Face book for the Bleph is precious.
I'll definitely look up there.
I have purchased Zaditor at the local pharmacy. It's antihistamine. Instructions are to drop eyes only twice a day. I got some relief but my eyes are half my -before bleph size and they are red. I don't wear eye make up.
I would never adviseabout putting anything in ones eyes unless an assessment has been made by a specialist.
What my doctor prescribed is not helping. She has no other suggestions.
