Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer:

It appears that you have infected eyelid with inflammation and associated dry eyes (Blepharitis). This is common and can be resolved with doxycycline 100 mg by mouth twice daily for 10 to 14 days; eyelid hygiene with 50% diluted baby shampoo used to clear the eyelids/lashes twice daily with hot/warm compresses; Lotemax or Alrex drop twice daily for 1-2 weeks; preservative eye lubricant such as Refresh or Genteal drop 4 times daily. You will need your doctor to authorize the prescription for doxycycline and Lotemax/Alrex. Unfortunately these is no medication like them OTC. These are very effective for condition such as yours. In the meantime, before you see your doctor you can start eyelid hygiene, warm compresses, tears and OTC Zaditor drop (4 times daily) for 1 week.


Please, feel free to clarify any further question(s). I'm always here to assist you until you are satisfied.
