Blepharitis : Introduction , Risk , Sign and Symptoms , Treatment




Blepharitis is inflammation of the eyelids. When it involves the surface 
front of the eyelid, where the eyelashes are attached, it's called anterior blepharitis. Anterior blepharitis could also be caused by:


·         Bacteria

·         Scalp dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis)

·         Allergy

·         Psoriasis

If blepharitis involves the inner eyelid, it's 
called posterior blepharitis. Posterior blepharitis could also be caused by:


·         Dysfunction of the oil (meibomian) glands within the eyelid

·         Acne rosacea

·         Scalp dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis)

·         Allergy


Who's at risk?

Although blepharitis is extremely 
common, people that have scalp dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis), dry skin, rosacea , contact allergies, diabetes, poor hygiene, or those sensitive to chemical irritants or cosmetic makeup are far more likely to suffer from blepharitis. Blepharitis isn't contagious.


Signs and Symptoms

Typically, the eyelids are reddened ("red rims" because it 
is usually called), swollen, and slightly warm, often with crusty debris (in the lashes, within the corner of the eyes, or on the lid edges). Burning, tearing, sensitivity to light, the sensation of a far off body within the eye(s), sticking together of the lids, watery or mucous discharge, pain, blurry vision, and eye redness may all occur with blepharitis. Eye lashes may fall out or become twisted and possibly irritate the attention. Blepharitis may affect just one eye, but, usually, both eyes are involved.


Self-Care Guidelines


·         Apply frequent warm, moist compresses.

·         Clean the eyelids with baby shampoo and a wet plant disease.

·         Practice good hygiene of the face and scalp, including use of antidandruff shampoo, if needed.

·         Make sure all makeup is removed daily.

·         Avoid any irritants which may cause blepharitis.

·         Keep underlying conditions controlled (eg, diabetes and acne rosacea).

When to hunt 
medical aid


·       Pain is increasing.

·       Vision is worsening.

·       Swelling is increasing.

·       The eyelids become hot to the touch.

·       The condition isn't recuperating within every week despite self-care.

·       There is blistering and/or rash on the eyelids.

·       There is development of a lesion (bump or growth) on the eyelid that doesn't answer the nice and cozy compresses.


Treatments Your Physician May Prescribe

Typically, blepharitis may be a 
chronic condition, but careful attention to daily hygiene and other preventative measures will reduce the recurrence rate.
