A couple months ago my optometrist prescribed Bacitracin ointment for blepharitis. I think it's the anterior type. After the first appointment, I returned in about a month and he said the lids were pretty much free of scales but the lids were still swollen. So he said to keep putting the Bacitracin on the lids at least twice a day for a year, until my next eye exam. I had to laugh about using it for a whole year. Is that the normal amount of time to use the ointment? Also, does anyone know if you can develop a resistance to it since it's an antibiotic? It just seems like an odd plan of treatment, but maybe it's the norm? Just wondered what you all thought. Thanks!
