    Blepharitis causes the eyelids to be inflamed with the symptoms of red, irritated itchy feelings on your eyes. Don't worry too much about it since it is very common as an eye disorder and won't cause any permanent damage to your eyes. It may be caused by bacterial infection. To certain degrees, applying the baby shampoo to help cleansing the infected area does alleviate the blepharitis. Baby shampoo proves effective in helping with the lid hygiene. If it does not work well, you might as well add some antibiotics like azasite or emycin. For your better relief, you can use some artificial tear solutions or some lubricating ointments. If all prove futile, you had better go to the eye doctors'. So anyway, good luck with your treatment.
