Are you one who suffers from red and itchy, inflamed eyelids? If your eyes are itching that doesn’t always mean you have allergies! One of the main causes today for red, irritated, itchy eyelids is Blepharitis. Blepharitis is an eyelid condition that causes itching, swelling and dandruff -like scales on their eyelashes. While Blepharitis is a very common condition, most people do not know about it! Luckily, it is not contagious and it will not affect your eyesight.
Some symptons of blepharitis include a gritty and burning feelings on your eyes, along with tearing, itching, inflammation, redness and crusting. It can be caused by bacteria, infestation of eyelids or blocked oil glands.
Blepharitis, in most cases, can be treated simply by lid hygiene and warm compresses.
