I don't know if it's a scam but the Wet ones haven't worked for me, so it's definitely not a cure. Still looking for something to helo me with my blepharitis.
Benzalkonium chloride is a well known antiseptic. Wet Ones work for people who are not allergic to them and who have staphylococcous blepharitis which is not complicated with a secondary dry eye. You can be allergic to benzalkonium chloride directly or to other ingredients in the wipes. I'm allergic to both. BZK is a perservative. If you're allergic to it you're inflammation gets worse resulting in drier eyes resulting in more bacteria.
You could also have seborrheic blepharitis or demodex blepharitis which is another reason why wet ones would not work. If you're in the US you can try Avenova. It's a new product from Novabay containing 0.01% hypochlorous acid which kills 99.99% of bacteria in less then a minute. There's a lot of hype going on about it.
