Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I can help you today.
I would use warm compresses. Also I would scrub your eyelids with baby shampoo by putting shampoo on your fingers in the shower, closing your eyes and scrubbing back and forth across your eyelashes. This would help with any allergies or underlying blepharitis you might have that is contributing to your symptoms.
Give this treatment a few days to help. If necessary, you could put a small amount of hydrocortizone 1% cream on your eyelids for a few days without any worry of causing problems.
I see you are in the chat room. Does this answer your question?
The itch is not near the eyelash area but in the crease of the eyelid. Is it still possibly blepharitis?
that may be part of the problem....and even though the itching is at the crease, you scrub by the eyelash because that is where the gland openings are on your eyelids and where allergens tend to build up.
does that make sense?
blepharitis by itself usually does not itch, that is why I think you have more then one issue going on causing your symptoms.
Ok, I'll do as you suggested and hope it works! Thanks.
