Homeopathic Remedies for Blepharitis

What is Blepharitis?

Blepharitis is an inflammation and irritation of the margins of the eyelids and is a very common eye ailment.  The causes of blepharitis comes from a variety of problems such as infection, allergy and also skin cancers.

Look out for its symptoms such as redness, a feeling of grit and the margins are covered with soft greasy scales which can dry into crusts and cause the eyelids to stick together.  Blepharitis can sometimes be mistaken for “dry eye” due the feeling of grittiness.  Lubricating eye drops which can provide relief for dry eye is not effective in the case of blepharitis.
