I’m not sure if you’re using Avenova Hypochlorous or our spray but you may have something more going on. It might not just be Blepharitis but what you’re doing is great for Blepharitis. You don’t need to add another lid scrub because if you’re using Avenova that’s enough.
Put it on a cotton round or cotton ball and wipe, that’s effective as Cliradex and Acusoft. The main difference between Cliradex is that has tea tree oil, which I recommend using our soap for that instead of Cliradex just because there are less chemicals and it's more natural. Again, we preach natural more than chemically ridden products. I would say do a combination of our soap, plus spray, and that’s going to help keep everything clean and clear. What I think you also might have is Eczema or Dermatitis. Or you might have just extremely dry skin to begin with. If I have patients with that, and myself included, if my skin gets out of control too much and even the natural remedies aren’t helping, I use a steroid cream. I prescribe it for my patients and it’s called Triamcinolone cream. It’s just a lotion based cream that has steroids in it. It’s a little stronger than your Hydrocortisone cream that you can get it over-the-counter. I use Triamcinolone cream and I actually close my eyes and put it on my eyelids if my eyelids were full of Eczema or Dermatitis or build-up or scaly skin.
I’m wondering if you might have an issue with Rosacea as well. Obviously we have no idea what your skin looks like but Rosacea can cause a build-up on eyelid margins and lots of Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. That’s also something that you could be dealing with so that’s something to look into. I know you’ve asked for at home remedies, but if you haven’t done an IPL or Meibomian flow or something like that, it could be something that the Ophthalmologist would want to do for you to see if that would help out to get all that gunk out of there.
