I have had itching along my lashline for months. Nothing

Customer Question

I have had itching along my lashline for months. Nothing seems to help. It actually feels like something is crawling along my lashline. My optometrist has prescribed cleansing with baby shampoo, then wipes, then steroid cream then lubricating drops. I wear contacts. Left them alone for a few weeks help. My eyebrows itch too..what is going on and what can I do. I can't wear eye makeup which is a problem as I need to look good for work:-)

Demadex mites can infect the lashes....
I would see a dermatologist for a magnified exam.
That would often be undiagnosed, but you would have to have been exposed somewhere.
In any case, I would see a dermatologist at this point.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
