Where are all you Blepharitis sufferers?

Where is everyone? I come to this site every day, and there's no new post. Are you cured? THAT would be a good reason for the lack of post. 😁 Please post your progress and method of managing your issue here. Mine is still, Baby Shampoo, Tea Tree Oil and Honey. Thanks. 😁. Dena

    Hi Dena. I thought I was cured as having suffered for over 20 years I tried the wet ones and was cured in a week! was blepharitis free for a year until afew weeks ago it came back. So I gave Manuka Honey a try for a few nights but that made it so much worse. I woke up with bloodshot eyes and had to do school run, I looked a mess. I thought manuka honey was supposed to be good for blepharitis.

    We're all here! Waiting to learn the news of a permanent cure for this miserable condition. Many of the solutions offered have helped us to manage, though, and we are hanging in there. For me, the Wet Wipes were a blessing.

    hi Darlene, i was using the wet ones too, and they did work. but 2nd time round, they don't seem to be doing anything. Did you find this has happened to you at all?How long were you using them for and did the blepharitis come back after using them.

    I stopped using Wet ones wipes only once. When the problem returned, I doubled down on the wipes 3-4 x day until it was again under control. Since that episode, I have continually used the wipes at least once a day at night. If I feel it flaring up, I increase the usage until it settles down. Unfortunately, I don't think we have found a cure, but mostly a tool for keeping things under control. One day, I hope...

    Chevonneha and Darlene, thanks so much for posting. Misery loves companyy 😊. All of these methods seem to help some and not others. I tried wet ones, but became allergic. It could be that I have severe dry eye and not Blepharitis

    Hi Dena sorry you are suffering on your own. Last weekend I was in such a mess, the infection had spread down the side of my nose and into my face. On top if that I had conjunctivitis ... not pretty! I went to my local A and E and was urgently referred to an Eye hospital A and E. They said I was on the wrong antibiotics and they diagnosed me with dacryocystitis which is basically a blocked tear duct. As it is not draining it is going into my face. They prescribed two weeks of antibiotics, antibiotic eye drops and some other eye drops. I was then referred to an Oculoplastics surgeon where I may have a procedure to reroute tears etc. It was a relief to be seen by someone in an eye hospital. Were you diagnosed by your doctor or did you go to a specialist eye hospital. Thats all I can offer I'm afraid. All the best Judith

      I had surgery to open my tear ducts and it caused scar tissue in the duct and now is worse than before. Wish I had never agreed to it.

    Hey na Im not cured, I have tried everything now Im just exepting it, I do want to get an operation on my eyelids to get rid of thick hardness I have now, it is thick hard and making me lose my sight, Iv seen doctors they cant help, but maybe later Ill see a sergeon to fix the cosmetic damage, I know theres probly a cure but I beleive that your body needs to be detoxified and made clean and no meat no crap for a good wile to clean it and get your bodies homiostasus back on track and your systems and cells working again, you know what I mean , because I had to most healing when I was juices and vegy terian mostly water healthy food and meditation sending light to the eyes and also geting out the trauma I went through and witnessed as in my lifetime helps to, I feel superficial isnt the answer, Iv had mine for 5 years not better, it was caused by moldy house.

      Judith Catherine, and everyone, several doctors said I have Blepharitis, but it seems like I just have dry eye. Don't understand this condition.I had a very bad sinus infection, and then this trouble with my eyes. it seems like most of my time is trying to deal with this. it's very discouraging as you well know. Oh, well we can just do the best we can.☺️

    I was wondering the same thing. If everyone is cured please share your treatment. I still use the Wet Ones and Cliridex wipes, but they seem to have stopped being as effective as they were in the past.

    Hi Dena,

    I’m new to this discussion but have seen a few posts of yours on this subject. How long have you been suffering with it? Also – how often can one expect the flare-ups to occur? What is the average?

    I have been battling this condition since November 2019, (now we are in May; now on 6 weeks course of Doxycycline antibiotics (3 weeks in) hardly any improvement. For me, the worst thing is the

    dry eye…

    Now – how is the Manuka Honey working for you? And do you know what happened to Dawn? The lady who said she cured her condition completely by using Manuka Doctor 20 plus. Can’t find any more comments from here on here (anything newer than from 2 years ago) and would love to know where is she at…

    Also, have you ever used Castor oil for the eye dryness? I have seen many conflicting posts about using Castor Oil for the eye (organic, cold pressed, hexane free oil of course).

    Some people claim it cured/or helps them massively with the dryness, some people say it caused cysts. Where is the truth? I read castor oil helps with cysts disappearing.. Also anti-inflammatory and antibacterial… And its been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine…

    And how about this ‘’Wet Ones’’ wipes – why are they better than any other wipes? As by reading all posts, they seem to be helping a lot of people..
