My eye lids would get dry after I get out of the shower and became very flaky. I went to the doc and he told me it was some bacteria and to wash my eyes with baby shampoo when I was in the shower and prescribed me a ointment to put on ( fluorometholone ophthalmic ointment). I have been doing this for about 5 years now and it wont go away!!Sometimes I wont wash or put the ointment on my eyelids and they wont get dry and flaky for about a week but then it comes back again. Why wont this go away!??!?! Its hard on my pocket to because the tube of ointment is really small and its 20$ a pop!
