wet ones for blepharitis

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have been using wet ones for treatment of my blepharitis for three weeks now and although I no longer get chronic dry, swollen, inflamed, gritty eyes, in other worst of it has gone, and I follow up with eye drops each time, I still have soreness and grittiness in one eye in particular, which is irritating, sadly wet ones are not a FULL rememdy and I was hoping they would be.  Fiona

    I ve had the opposite.

    in desperation, I tried the Wet Ones, they made my eyes 100% worse and I ended up in Eye Casualty. 

    Please just be very cautious if you are going to try gem. I followed the instructions here, cutting each into 8, wrapping around finger so only the tip touched my eye margin. By Day 2 I had swollen, inflamed yes, sore beyond belief, blurred vision. Far worse than they were before I tried them.

    so fed up with this miserable condition which seems to be ruling my life.

    Hi fiona

    ive been treating my blepharitis with the wet ones in the red packet for about 8 week now & my eyes are so much better.

    within the first 4 weeks I had several flare ups but I think the key is to stick at it for the full 4 months.

    i hope you have success because I know how horrible blepharitis is.

    good luck Fiona

    Hi Fiona

    My Consultant told me to put a few drops of baby (tearless) shampoo in some warm water and with my middle finger very gently wipe round the edges of each eye twice.  This is working extremely well for me.  Try it, it might help.

      Hi Jacqueline, I have heard of this one but don't feel its advisable as when much younger and used baby shampoo and whenever it got in my eyes it really stung, so actually applying it, don't feel happy, but someone else on here said the wet ones may take up to four months to really get on top of it so I'll keep on with them I think Fiona

      Hi Fiona 

      My lovely Mr Johnson said always get tearless baby shampoo, and even when I apply it a bit too close to the eye it doesn't sting at all.  Still we all have to use what works for us don't we.  Hope you get relief soon, it is a very nasty condition isn't it?  

      Love
