Welcome to EmpowHER.
Blepharitis is inflammation of the eyelids. and loss of eyelashes is one symptom.
Blepharitis commonly occurs when tiny oil glands located near the base of the eyelashes become clogged. This leads to irritated and red eyes. Several diseases and conditions can cause blepharitis.
Self-care measures, such as washing your eyes and using warm compresses, may be the only treatment necessary for most cases of blepharitis. If that is not enough, your doctor may suggest prescription treatments, including:
medications that fight infection, medications to control inflammation. Steroid eyedrops or ointments may help control inflammation, and medications that affect the immune system.
