Blepharitis is an inflammation and/or infection of the eyelids and eyelash follicles, causing redness, itchiness and scaling of the lid margins.

What Causes Blepharitis?

It is frequently associated with a fungal dermatitis of the eyebrows and scalp (dandruff). Sometimes it may be a form of eczema or dermatitis. If blepharitis becomes chronic it can lead to loss or ingrowing of the eyelashes, and secondary bacterial infection may occur.
