The treatment consists of 3 things and must be done consistently for effective control and cure.
First, you take a warm wash cloth or warm compress and lay it across your lids for 5 minutes (heat must be applied for 5 mins). This helps the oil glands get moving again and helps loosen up the debris on the lashes.
Next you take some baby shampoo and mix it with water (50/50) and use a wash cloth to rub across and cleanse the skin and lashes. This helps remove the debris.
Last, you apply antibiotic ointment, like erythromycin ophthalmic ointment to the base of the lashes.
This regimen helps get rid of or control the infection in about 2 weeks. You may try this without the antibiotic ointment first, but may need to talk to your doctor for a prescription for the erythromycin ophthalmic ointment if your symptoms do not resolve fully.
I hope this helps, this condition is a nuisance for many people and until the diagnosis is made, it can lead to lots of irritation and redness.
I wish you well, Dr. Stevens
