Blepharitis is inflammation of the eyelids, particularly lid margins- the part of the eyelid where the eyelashes grow. It affects both eyelids. Blepharitis is a common disorder and can be associated with a low-grade infection. When oil glands, which are located near the base of the eyelashes become clogged Blepharitis occurs. Your eyes might seem red and irritated. There are two main types of Blepharitis: anterior and posterior. Anterior Blepharitis is caused mostly by bacteria and scalp dandruff and affects the outside area of the eyelids, where the lashes are attached. Posterior Blepharitis can also be caused by scalp dandruff and also acne rosacea and it affects the inner eyelid. Blepharitis is a chronic condition and it can be challenging to treat it. Normally Blepharitis doesn’t cause any damage to an eyesight but it can be uncomfortable.
An exact reason that causes Blepharitis is not clear as it can be caused by more than just one factor. It can be caused by dandruff, a bacterial infection, clogged oil glands, rosacea, allergies and etc. Although, symptoms can be clear enough to visit a doctor including red or watery eyes, itchy eyelids, sensitivity to light, loss of eyelashes, flaking of the skin around your eyes and etc.
There are different ways to treat Blepharitis it can be either taking antibiotics, massaging the lids or applying warm compresses to the eyelids.
