My right eye lid has been swollen for almost 2 months now, I have tried everything hot compress you name it I’ve tried it. I have recently been to the doctors and been diagnosed with Blepharitis. I have never had any of the symptoms which include itching eyes or crusty eyelids/ dry eye lids so when googling to self diagnose myself I never thought Blepharitis is what was causing my eye problem but according to the doctor it is. I was prescribed with 1% hydrocortisone which the doctor said should reduce the swelling. It has made no difference and to be honest the swelling seems now more noticeable.
Having one swollen eye is truly starting to get my down. I know there are things a lot worse which could be happening but I am only 21 and my eye looks completely different to my left eye I am extremely self conscious about it.
I haven’t worn makeup in well over a month to make sure none of my make up was contributing to this and stopping wearing it has made no difference.
Has anyone had anything like this before? Could it be something other than Blepharitis considering I don’t have any other symptoms?
Does anyone have any advice on getting my puffy swollen eye to go back to normal since the steroid cream has had no effect?
Thankyou in advance to anyone who takes the time to read this. I know off the bat it seems like having a swollen eye may not be a big deal but it really is starting to affect my confidence now.
