Seborrheic Blepharitis

Seborrheic Blepharitis. Not Scary But Irritating!

This is a very common inflammation of the eyelids.  It is characterized by a greasy, oily appearance of the eyelids.  There is also a recurrent dandruff-like inflammation on the edge of the eyelid.  More symptoms may include dry irritated eyes, a burning sensation, itching of the eyelid margins and occasionally loss of eyelashes.

 

The treatment suggested for this chronic condition is to use a medicated eyelid scrub specifically formulated for these conditions.  A daily eyelid scrub is necessary to help remove the crusty flakes along the lash line and help maintain clean and healthy eyelids.
