I have recently been diagnosed with blepharitis, i have suffered with really dry eye balls since feb this year so much so i wanted to claw my own eyes out. I pushed my gp to refer me to the eye clinic where i was told i have blepharitis i never considered this as i never had the sore eye lids or crusty eye lids. I have been prescribed clinitas and lacrilube which have relieved the dry eye ball.
However the past couple of weeks i have had the swollen eyelids which end up really drying out and leaving me with deep lines. I have also had a swollen red face resembeling an allergic reaction has anyone else had this?
I keep returning to my gp but i dont feel i am believed about all my symptons as time i actually get in to see a gp the symptons seem to die down, however i pushed to get an appointment this week on the day of my flare up i see a locum gp who prescribed me with steroids which have helped. I am keeping fingers crossed that it isnt going to flare up once the steroids are stopped, i will be honest this is getting me down as i dont want to go out as i look a mess.
I am reading everyones input and going to take a lot of what has been said on board, so i have some wipes and mascara wands on order.
So does this affect anyone else face????
Although i go swimming 4 times a week so i am just hoping this has nothing to do with it.
Any advise is welcomed
