Can anyone tell me about Blepharatis and in particular whether Staphloccus is likely the cause ?

  • Best treatments for blepharitis (sorry cannot tell you if staph is the cause) are the following: Wash eyes VERY gently using J&J baby shampoo. After that get some green tea or Kukicha (this is also called twig tea and is harder to find but better than green for this problem) tea and soak a hot tea bag on the eye - careful not too hot:rolleyes:. Blepharitis can come and go. I have been able to keep it under control with these two treatments. If you wear makeup, throw out ALL of it and discontinue wearing any eye makeup for a month or so. If you wear contacts I would also discontinue using them until you feel better, or wear glasses instead. Try not to rub your eyes, and don't reuse wash clothes. Wash all washclothes in hot water.
