Red itchy eyes, feel dry and white liquid coming from the outer corners.

For the last year and a half, i have had really sore itchy, red eyes, it seems to get worse on the evenings, but it feels as though i have grit under my eyelids, and there is white liquid that comes from the outer corner of my eyes.also i cant stop blinking, its rellt annoying me. i have used conjunctiviits drops and tear drops from the pharmacy, but nothing helps them, i have been to the eye infirmary twice, and they have given me them drops i said above aswell, but they havent helped at all, its relly worrying what could the problem be?

If you are not doing lid scrubs you should start.  Get a wash cloth wet with VERY warm water, set it on your eyes, leave it until it startes to cool.  Then put a dab of baby shampoo on the corner of the cloth, run it under the warm water to dilute it some then scrub your eyelids.  Do this 2 to 3 times a day for 2 weeks, then you can cut back to 1-2 times a day.  This may need to be a daily habit.  You probably have Blepharitis.  The oil glands in the eyelids get plugged up and infected.  This should help.  Good Luck,  Lu An, COT
