I have blepharitis on the eyelids i want the best and fast way to vet rid if this it's awful
Hello, the best and fast way is to apply prescription.
I suffered from blepharitis for a couple years. I tried everything. I had a wonderful eye doctor who assured me that we would tackle the problem. Apparently, I was the worst case he had ever treated. What did work was a very strong eye infection antibiotic called Azasite Opthamalic. I believe in my case it was considered to be an "off-label prescription" and I used it for a much longer term. One round of this medication lasts six weeks, and my doctor extended that to two rounds. Taking the medicine was a mixed blessing, as IT DID ULTIMATELY WORK. But, applying the drops was VERY painful - like dripping acid on my eyeballs. However, once the burning subsided, my eyes calmed down and it really controlled the itching. I must emphasize that I was a really bad case. By the time I found my great doctor, my eyelids were scabbed and peeling, making it painful just to blink, much less close my eyes and get a good nights sleep. Azasite, Azasite, Azasite!
I've had shingles for over two years on my face and eye lid and still itch alot help.! !
Postherpetic neuralgia? It's a complication of shingles. The nerves under the area of shingles rash were damaged, causing long lasting feeling of pain and/or itching.

A few ways:

1. warm compress

2. eyelid scrub - Soak a clean washcloth, cotton swab (Q-tip) applicator, or lint-free pad in warm water. Then use it to gently scrub the base of your eyelashes. Scrub for about 15 seconds.

3. antibiotics - on prescription

4. eye drops - on prescription or artificial tears, note that 

5. keep eyelid clean

Eyelid hygiene is very helpful to treat and control blepharitis, but only if performed properly.

To begin, use a clean, warm compress to melt any blocked residue in the oil-secreting meibomian glands in your eyelids. Here's how:

  • Wash your hands, then dampen a clean washcloth with warm (nearly hot) water.
  • Place the washcloth over your closed eyelids for several minutes.
  • Then gently rub your eyelid margin with the washcloth before opening your eyes. (Don't press hard on your eye.)
