Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Actually, yes. I would suggest you get some johnsons and johnsons baby shampoo.
I like to use baby shampoo for lid scrubs. In the shower, place the shampoo on your index fingers, close your eyes, raise your eyebrows (to stretch the skin on your eyelids) and scrub back and forth along your eyelashes for 3 to 5 minutes
You can also apply a commercial skin cream in the affected area to soothe it. This should take care of things until you can get back home.
Does this make sense to you?
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)

I am sorrry! I sent additional info after your first answer and it doesn't appear to be included in the scripts of my questions today. I am not sure where it went but is not the
info shown sent [-time-stamped at 1:50] by me above your new answer.
ok, I will try again to give the info that looks like it never got to you.
I was told not to use J&J baby shampoo and never ever to rub or scrub but to pat
STERI-LID [only] and splash with lukewarm water until fully rinsed. Then to only use soft tissue and no washclothes or anything that might allow me to start rubbing the extremely itchy site and cause more irritation. I haqve extremely sensitive skin.
There is nothing wrong and a lot extremely right about being a internal medical dr. I just wanted an answer from a specialist. I am sure you can see why. Thank you again and please do not be offended.
Does this mean you don't think Restasis has value?
I also do use a drop made by Alcon and Optive for sensitive eyes which is
a tear replacement. I have trusted my eye specialist but may show her your
recommendations. She only has me use the FML for very limited times and
only when skin has cracked open.
The Ciloxan is once a week and not on a daily basis.
