Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today. It is possible that blepharitis is contributing to your issues still. That being said, if you have been doing the lid scrubs for a few weeks and are still having problems I think it is time for you to see your ophthalmologist for a full exam.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?\
