I would like to share my latest discovery for control of Blepharitis.
When the facial wipes that I had been using with great success vanished from store shelves, I immediately began to search for a new control system.
I have been reading everything on these message boards and over the last few months, I have tried many of the suggestions found here. Twice during that time, I ended up on antibiotics with a chalazion (which I never had before).
Because I had mild success with a drop of Tea Tree Oil in my facial cleanser, I decided to experiment further and ......
Here is what now works perfectly for me. It just might work for you too.
*In 1\4 cup of warm water (pre-boiled) add 10 drops of 100% pure tea tree oil. I use cotton rounds to dip into the solution. With them slightly dripping, I bathe my eyelids for at least 30 seconds. I do not rinse, I only dab the excess dripping water with a tissue. If you try this, your eyes will not burn, they will just feel cool and comfortable. It will stop any itching. A quarter cup is sufficient for two days. I do this 4 times a day with really good success. It should be warm or room temperature. It's inexpensive, natural and soothing. When I was trying everything, the skin around my eyes was terribly dry, red and very irritated but now I look and feel normal and I am happy again

I had to use AzaSite for three weeks, doxy for thirty days. Now I use the single drop of tto in a squirt of baby shampoo mmorning and night, with a midday Occusoft eye scrub...and five m i utes of my warm eyemask. Im down to very sporadic use of eye drops and no use of lacrilube. But the moment this routine starts to not work for me, I will try yours.
What is eye mask?
How kind of you!!! I will definitely try your routine. Can't imagine how you do it 4times a day. But I will follow your gracious advice.
I tried Wet Ones and expensive Cliradex. Both of them smell of Chlorox and give me
slight but very unpleasant burn. I will switch to your routine.
Please let us know if it works for you. Good luck
Thank you for your tip about tea tree oil ,I'm going to try this . I have tried the baby shampoo, bicarbonate,,wipes from my optician, warm eye pad but nothing seems to be working . Fingers crossed this might work for me.
That's great.... Good luck
