Is it normal that my blepharitis is affecting my upper eyelids?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hey all, just noticed that recently my upper eyelids (below the eyebrows) are getting red, not painful or itchy, with a little bit of white scales, after removing the scales with Blephasol, that part of skin seems to be wrinkled. 

For months my blepharitis only affected the eyelid margins, could it spread to the upper part as well?

    Hi,if you are useing wet compresses,wipes etc,all that water and washing is probably drying your skin out there.

      That's what I thought, in my case I don't think it's the clogged meibomian glands that caused the problem, as I eat little oil everyday and my eyelids had never been greasy.  

      It all started with a minor infection, I used antibiotics for a while and kept on travelling, probably due to the poor hygine in South Asia then it developed into blepharitis, pretty annoying for a young guy like me in his 20s.

    You don't really have a choice but to clean with whatever works for you. If you try different methods found on this site, you will find a way to not develop a rash and yet control your blepharitis. It's different for everyone. 

    I'm really sorry that you have developed this condition at this young age. Good luck !
