Hi to everyone here..seems like such a great community so i thought id join
My problem is Blepharitis/MGD which i have struggled with for a year now and in the last few months things have really gotten worse, i started off with just slight burning and gritty eyes and now its turned evil.
I have stubborn hard yellow waxy scaly crusts on both my lower eyelid margins which arent moving with just lid scrubs and when i do shrink them a bit they just keep growing back, i definetly think i have seborrheic blepharitis as i get flakes in my eyebrows and ears since i was a teen. Problem is those crusts are harbouring bacteria and i cant do much heat compresses or friction to the eyelids or my lids get very red and veiny and look terrible.
Im very sensitive to most things near my eyes! I used ocusoft lid scrub and it does help in dissolving the waxy sebum but it then makes my lids go red and im left with red lines below the crusts after i use a cotton swab to try to dislodge the damn crusts.
I have the following things in my arsenal to try but am worried it will make things worse and increase inflammation to my lids:
Ocusoft Plus anti bacterial scrub
Sterilid lid scrub (tea tree oil)
Bicarbonate of soda
I just cant understand why the oily bumps keep appearing on my lower lids, it seems like im producing to much sebum
Please help as im frustrated
