Blepharitis (Blef / a / right / us) is a condition where the lids of the eye seem to have dry skin issues such as scaling, itching, chaffing, and flaking of the skin and also rash type feelings and symptoms. In the severe state the blepharitis can cause irregular tear production and show up as waxy scales around the lashes of the upper and lower lids.

There are two types of blepharitis. The first and most common type is often part of an overall skin condition where the skin is just simply too dry. This is common in patients that also suffer from dry scalp (dander), chest skin and back of the ears and hair line.

Hormones, nutrition and general health conditions may contribute to blepharitis. Even stress can play a role in the blepharitis patient.

The second form of blepharitis is from a staph infection caused by bacteria that begins in childhood and may continue through adulthood. Left untreated, this form of blepharitis can cause small ulcers, loss of eyelashes, eyelid scarring and even red eye syndrome.

Our doctors can diagnose which form of blepharitis the patient has and treat the condition based upon this diagnosis. It starts with careful cleaning of the eyelids to reduce the condition from getting more severe. Application of hot packs to the eyes for 20 minutes a day can also help. Staph infection type blepharitis may require a prescription therapy in order to correct the issues. The doctors at Sioux Falls Family Vision have antibiotic drops and ointments for these conditions.
