What Is Blepharitis?
Blepharitis, also known as granulated eyelids, is a condition that causes the eyelids to become inflamed. It is often associated with scalp dandruff, acne, or a bacterial infection. There are two different forms, and symptoms include:
- Itching or burning eyes
- Crusting around the eyes on awakening.
Treatment typically includes proper eyelid hygiene, medications, and addressing the underlying condition. Unfortunately, blepharitis tends to be a recurring condition, and people may expect to experience it long-term.
