I woke up Boxing Day with a swollen, itchy, red eyelid and was diagnosed at the walk in centre as having this rotten sympton (Im in the UK). I was prescribed a cream and given paperwork advising how to treat the symptons at home.
By New Years Eve I was crawlling the walls in desperation. I looked and felt dreadful - the itchiness was keeping me awake and I had to go visit a doctor Friday as it wasnt improving. I've had no flakiness on my eyelashes or gunk as other sufferers have had tho.- just swelling and itching.
On Friday the Doctor prescribed me anti-histermines so i could sleep, Optrex Allergy eyedrops and Simple Eye ointment. I then purchased Wet Ones having read Lynda's blogs on how they worked for her.
What can I say! Im on day two of using the Wet Ones ... using 4 times a day (I am also using 4 drops of the Allergy eyedrops and cleaning twice daily). The difference is amazing. My eyelid swelling has reduced considerably, the redness towards my eyebrows has nearly vanished and I just have a slight swelling still above my eyelid. I'm sure it has to be the Wet Ones. I'm just going to try and purchase some natural moisturiser for my eyelid as my skin feels a little dry (maybe a Simple one).
I'm just hoping if I continue to use the Wet Ones the Blepharitis will disappear completely. Thankyou Lynda, so glad I found this discussion board - and of course the Wet Ones!
