dry eyes and blepharitis

I went to the doctors with all kinds of symptoms. Dry eyes and blepharitis is what has been diagnosed. But it seems that there is no cure for either of these.

I am in my 20's and all of a sudden I now have 2 incurable diseases. Does this mean I will have it for life? They get sore, itchy, red and irritated especially at night.

Thanks.

Do you despair because you hair and skin get dirty and you have to bathe and shampoo? Do you despiar because you have to brush your teeth everyday?

Its no different with a chronic disease like blepharitis/dry eyes. It takes what it takes to keep them comfortable for as long as it takes. That's life.

but its another (greater) inconvenience that has to be added to the list.

Can you tell me, how these conditions develop?

Is it a case of ''one day I caught blepharitis and now its permanent''?

Dear Jim,

My friend and myself were able to kill Blepharitis. My friend's Blepharitis moved up onto her eyelids. She used a facial scrub that had Benzethonium Chloride in it. I could not find it so got on internet to see what other products had Benzethonium Chloride in it.

I ended up using WET ONES, antibacterial hand wipes, in the red box.
I tore each one into 8 sections and used 2 on each eyelash area 4 times a day for a week and a half. I then went down to 3 times a day for a month. My eyes started not to itch as much. I then went down to 2 times a day for several months.
I had one or two times that it itched and I jumped on it with the wipes and then it was gone.
There were 3 doctors (including the one who diagnosed the Blepharitis) who looked in my eyes and could not find it. They said it would come back. I said it had been 4-5 months. It is now almost a year and still gone.
Please remember that 2 people using 2 different products with Benzethonium Chloride killed Blepharitis.
A Dr. I blogged asked if I rinsed my eyes after and I told him no.
This may sound too easy but remember that ulcers were thought to have no cure too. They were bacterial and now people are given an antibiotic.
This problem is bacterial or else this product could not have killed it off.
It is deep in the roots of the eyelashes and that is why it takes such a long time to kill it.
I hope this gives you relief in the future. I learned to blog to get this information out to help a few people. The cure is not hard or expensive just
a little long.
Wish you well,
