Blepharitis treatment with homeopathy

A common inflammation, blepharitis produces a red-rimmed appearance of the margins of the eyelids. It’s frequently chronic and bilateral and can affect both upper and lower lids. Seborrhic blepharitis is characterized by formation of waxy scales and symptoms of burning and foreign body sensation. Staphylococcus blepharitis is characterized by formation of dry scales along the inflamed lid margins, which also have ulcerated areas and may be associated with keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS, a dry-eye syndrome. Both types may coexist. Blepharitis tends to recur and become chronic. It can be controlled if treatment begins before onset of ocular involvement.

Blepharitis (blef-uh-RI-tis) is inflammation that affects the eyelids. Blepharitis is a common eye condition, causing the eyelids to be reddened, itchy, and somewhat swollen and scaly-appearing at the base of the eyelashes. As scales become coarser, the surface of the eye becomes irritated and forms crusts, which may cause the lids to stick together when waking up in the morning. If this crust falls into your eye, you may feel like you have "something in your eye" or experience a gritty sensation.

The eyes may become dry due to inflammation of moisture-producing tissues and this can cause a gritty sensation as well. It usually involves the part of the eyelid where the eyelashes grow. It occurs when tiny oil glands located near the base of the eyelashes malfunction. This leads to inflamed, irritated and itchy eyelids. Several diseases and conditions can cause blepharitis. It is often a chronic condition that is difficult to treat. Blepharitis can be uncomfortable and may be unattractive, but it usually doesn't cause permanent damage to eyesight.
