"BLEPHARITIS"

ALWAYS RECURRING EYELID EDGE INFLAMMATION


1) Cause
The mucous glands at the base of the lashes, producing a too sticky mucus that stick together in crusts (similar to the dandruff of the scalp hairs). Those greasy crusts are ideal breeding grounds for microbes. This caused recurring infections, which eventually cause eyelash loss. Due to the irritation, there occurs mechanical irritation by rubbing the eyelids, with more mucus as result. So the patient ends up in a vicious circle.

2) Treatment

DO NOT RUB THE EYELIDS! (Except for daily eyelid hygiene)

a) Eyelid Hygiene: DAILY!
Every day (as well beyond the inflammation periods! - preferably in the morning): The white crusts at the base of the eyelashes should be removed with good eyelid hygiene. You will need a washcloth (or even better: a cotton swab (= 'cotton bud')), soaked in warm water and baby shampoo. Eventually you can use a special solution (eg =Blephasol) you need to rinse afterwards. You may also slightly pressing on the eyelids, so that the glands of the eyelid are pressed empty. After the eyelid hygiene you should not rub on the eyelids! Alternatively, you can opt for ready-made compresses: Blephadosis (30 per box) or BLEPHACLEAN (20 per box / swab slightly larger: 12 to 12 instead of 5 to 7 cm / also contains zinc, vitamin A and hyaluronic acid: skin restoring). Especially after a bath, the eyelid and soften scabs well they are easy to rub with a cotton swab. Possibly you had weakened BLEPHAGEL to lubricate the eyelids 2 X / day (as a demaquillant). This also disinfect the crusts. You should not rinse.
  
b) Medication
If the eye irritation persists or recurs, you can use the following medication (Note: ointments last longer than one month):

-Strong:
• TERRACORTRIL ointment, with red inflamed eyelid edges (in the evening to make the eyelid margins - the ointment may also catch the eye) - a prescription is needed!
• PREDMYCIN P eye drops for red eyes - a prescription is needed!

-Innocent:
• VIDISIC LUBRICITY eye gel by gritty feeling eyes. Can be applied several times in the eye during the day. If gel tube is difficult: use "Ocugel", this is a gel in dropper bottle. All these innocent medications are available without a prescription.
There is also "SUPERGEL": Hylocomod - working longer, but twice as expensive! Liposic is a gel with fat, which prevents the evaporation of tears. Especially with blepharitis work is needed!
• DESOMEDINE eye drops can be used to disinfect and prevent infection.

c) Other Resources:
-In painfull localized swelling of the eyelid (a "tipeye") can arise in rapid disappearance of the lesion, by using hot compresses (2-3 times a day for a ten minute warm-made handkerchiefs (with an iron or hot water).
Alternative: cold hot pack (it stays hot or cold for half an hour) - to get at pharmacy. This is useful if you regularly should apply warm compresses. There are also night glasses "TRANQUILEYES".

-If many scales are present between the head hair, there can be used often a specific SHAMPOO ANTI SCALE.
The anti-fungal Nizoral shampoo (shampoo! / Not use around the eyes !!!), available in pharmacies, is hereby recommended.
The hair treatment is also good for eye complaints.

-If there are acne and red cheeks present, there can be additional Rosacea. This is a skin disease, who should be treated by a dermatologist (possibly with tetracycline antibiotics).

-Visine eye drops, can white the eyes (= clean), but do not cure!

-By many sunlight sunglasses can raise the eye comfort!
Irritated eyes can't not bear the sunlight after all.
