Hello this is squamous blepharitis treatment: a. use antidandruff shampoo for head b. scrub eye lashes with baby shampoo
U may be suffering from blepharitis.. Lid hygiene is of utmost importance.. First make sure u take care of dandruff on ur head. Then u can clean the eyelashes/eyelids with baby shampoo when u take bath in the morning.. And apply an antibiotic eye ointment to eye lids at night..
