Blepharitis is the inflammation of the eyelids that affects the oil glands of both the lids and eyelashes. There are two forms of this health problem 1) non- ulcerative and 2) ulcerative. In the nonulcerative type, it causes symptoms that may include: burning, itching, swelling, watering, and redness, accompanied by the formation of crusts of dried mucus on the eye lids. This health condition was once known as “granulated eyelids.” Nonulcerative blepharitis is a cousin of dandruff and eczema, and may be a complication of psoriasis. It is often linked to seborrhea of the scalp, the eyebrows, and the skin around the eyes. In ulcerative blepharitis, a Staphylococcus infection at the roots of the eyelashes causes sticky crusts to form on the lid margins, followed by small sores, or ulcers. The eyes become reddened and abnormally sensitive to light. Both forms of blepharitis may be contagious. Severe blepharitis can lead to corneal problems with the eyes. This health condition is serious and should not be ignored.  natural treatment cure medicine information herbal alternative healing nutrition

Signs and symptoms which are related with chronic inflammation can be:

* Redness of the eyelids
* Flaking of skin on the lids
* Crusting at the lid margins (worse on waking)
* Cysts at the lid margin (hordeolum)
* Red eye
* Debris in the tear film, seen under magnification
* Gritty sensation of the eye
* Reduced vision

Common signs and symptoms of blepharitis also include itching, irritation and burning as well as a foreign body sensation. Some people experience eye dryness that may cause pain or discomfort.

People who wear contact lenses usually have more trouble in coping with their symptoms because although they need contact-lenses, they cannot wear them. Many such patients complain of being unable to wear their lenses for long periods of time or that the lenses are causing them even more irritation of the eye.

The eyelids may become red and may have ulcerative, non healing areas that may bleed. Blepharitis does not normally cause problems with the person's vision, but due to a poor tear film, they might have blurred vision.

Eye redness and swelling tend to appear in more advanced cases, and they are rarely primary symptoms. The symptoms can slightly vary based on the exact cause of the condition. Blepharitis due to an allergy can cause dark lids, symptom which is called allergic shiner which is more frequent in children than adults. Infectious blepharitis is accompanied by a yellow or green colored pus discharge that is normally more abundant in the morning and which causes stuck eyelids. Blepharitis may also cause eyelid matting or gluing of the lashes. And dandruff may occur on the scalp or on the eyebrows.

Other blepharitis symptoms include:

- sensitivity to light
- eyelashes that grow abnormally
- loss of eyelashes

The tears might appear bubbly in nature and mild scarring might occur to the eyelids. The symptoms and signs of blepharitis are often erroneously ascribed by the person as being due to recurrent conjunctivitis.

Blepharitis that localizes in the skin of the eyelids may cause styes or chalazia, that appear like red bumps, sometimes with a yellow spot if infection is present. Even though pain is not common among blepharitis symptoms, if the condition persists or becomes painful, the individual is recommended to seek medical attention for the problem. Chronic blepharitis can result in damage of different severity which may have a bad effect upon vision and thus upon the person's eyeglass prescription lens.

Infectious blepharitis can cause hard crusts around the eyelashes which leave small ulcers that may bleed or ooze after cleaning. As a general rule, blepharitis symptoms which do not improve, despite good hygiene consisting of proper cleaning and care of the eye area, should be referred to a doctor.
