As most of you know my eye has had problems since April, I been given different eye creams. Well I am told it is blepharitis , if you look up images for it on the internet. I think it looks like my eye. I will be seeing an eye doctor soon, from what I understand, not contagious, treatable, but no cure.

Yes, it can be treated. I had a very mild case and was told to use warm compresses to relive it. Their are other treatments to keep the eyelid clean of bacteria. I was also told to use a mild baby shampoo to clean my eye lids.

It could be blepharitis and now that they know, I hope they are giving you the right treatment.

the doctor can only put the referral in to the optometrist, she can't say for sure what caused it. I looked it up and all i see is this Treatment can help, but this condition can't be cured Requires a medical diagnosis Lab tests or imaging rarely required Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong Blepharitis commonly occurs when the tiny oil glands of the inner eyelid become inflamed. It often occurs along with other skin conditions or allergies. Symptoms include red, itchy eyelids that may look greasy and crusted. Dry eyes also are a symptom. Treatments include cleaning the eyelids, antibiotic or steroid eyedrops, and treating underlying conditions. However, blepharitis tends to come back. Just my luck

You also can use Apple Cider Vinegar (brand name of Braggs) and put a few drops in warm water and it cleans the eye really well Jelly. I have had this too and that vinegar gets rid of it. It does not sting as long as you ratio the warm water and vinegar right and use cotton balls or pads.

That looks pretty bad. It also looks painful. There needs to be a cure for that. Praying that it feels better and looks better. I managed to mess up my eye, too. I dropped some disinfectant in a bucket of water and it splashed up right into my eye. I put my face under the cold water faucet but I could still feel the burning inside the eyelid. I have never done anything that stupid at work all the years I have been there.

Is your eyes better? that sounds bad. for me ,half of my eye is close, this thing is on the top of my eyelid inside the top eyelid and the bottom.

@CookieMonster46 I looked it up. Warm compresses and gentle cleaning of the area are the best things to do for it. Or follow your doctor's advice if it is different.

It's eyelid inflammation? It's since April? that's too long. Sometimes my eyelids hurt too but I wait for a week and it will be gone

I went to urgent care in April they gave me a cream said eye infection but it has gone on some time, then a nurse told me I had a stye right after the eye infection cleared up but it never went away and just seems to be getting worse.
