Loads of suggestions last time for treating this eye condition, and more have arrived this week. Never use shampoo or any detergent close to the eye, despite what an eye specialist said last week. Instead try a few drops of preservative-free castor oil to the eye at bedtime and rinse out in the morning with lukewarm water. Alternatively apply a light coating of Kajal to the lower lid edge. Another option is a cream that contains neem seed oil. One reader discovered that blepharitis is caused by conditions such as candidosis, so cut out all yeast products and foods and avoid sugar.
