Common Causes of Blepharitis

There is a range of potential causes for blepharitis as well as related issues that have been somewhat linked by studies.

Blepharitis is most commonly caused by bacterial eyelid infection, meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), dry eyes, fungal eyelid infection, and parasites (demodex eyelash mites).

It is often considered to be related to ocular rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, and psoriasis.

Although not proven to be linked, blepharitis and pink eye often happen together. Some medical professionals believe that blepharitis is a precursor to meibomian gland dysfunction and dry eyes instead of being caused by blepharitis.

Some people have also had blepharitis start after having issues with their contact lenses.

The symptoms most common from blepharitis is a burning or stinging of the eyes, crusty debris or dandruff on your eyes or eyelashes, watery and irritated eyes, and itchy eyes.

Depending on your specific case of blepharitis and its severity, the symptoms may be more or less regular. You can also experience these symptoms on their own or any and even all of them together.

From here, they will be able to advise the best treatments for your case, helping you to get the best results and actually treat the problems that are affecting you.

Check out these treatments that could help your situation:

Eyelid Scrubs

The best way to treat problems is to prevent them; blepharitis is no different. Eyelid scrubs will not only help to get rid of the issue but will help to prevent it and maintain care of your eyelids in general.

These scrubs will let you remove the buildup of biofilm and bacteria on your eyelids and eyes, helping to get rid of what causes the issue.

Use scrubs to wash away and clean your eyelid in order to get rid of the issue. Use it with warm water and some sort of cleanser (either over-the-counter or prescribed).

Eye Drops or Ointments

In some cases, your doctor can prescribe medical treatments that you will either place on your skin (topical treatment) or in your eye as an eye drop.

These often work to help remove the problem medically, helping to reduce bacteria and stop your blepharitis from acting up.

Blepharitis Eye Mask

Preventing the problem is the best method, which is why a blepharitis eye mask is a great product to have.

It will help reduce bacteria and counteract blepharitis while allowing you to maintain health and keep the problem at bay.
