Ankan (Stockholm) on 11/04/2015: Hello!
I really like this page, I read a lot about different cures for blepharitis. I was also diagnosed with blepharitis about 7 months ago. At the moment I use an eye pad and massage and cleaning procedure two times a day. I am also trying this coconut oil thing. I apply it around my eyes in the morning and in the night. My issue is that when I apply the oil too close to my eyes, (and by too close I mean on my eyelids) then my eyes start to burn. They are so sensitive to everything. Right now, I apply it directly outside my eyelids, not actually on the eyelids. and that works if I do not apply too much of it. But yesterday before I got to bed I thought I should try to apply coconut oil on my eyelids and very close to my eyelashes, so I did. and today I have had a burning feeling in my eyes. How can my eyes react like this?

Clayton72 (Dallas, Tx) on 01/11/2012: I recently came down with an eye infection. At first, I assumed it was Pink Eye but my actual eyeball was not red at all. There was swelling from the inner corner of my eye to the middle of the lid and my eyelid was pretty red. By the next day, my eye hurt really bad whenever I blinked. When I realized it was probably Blepharitis, I put coconut oil on it. I did that only trying to keep the scales from forming on the lid. Some of the pics I saw online were disgusting and some of the people had major crust forming around the lashes. I figured that coconut oil would probably keep the skin from collecting.
To my surprise, I found that as long as the coconut oil was on my lid, there was no pain. I never saw any scales form and within 2 days, my eye was not swollen anymore. You have to keep putting the coconut oil on (2-3 times a day), you will notice when it dries because your eye will be itchy and will hurt again. So happy it worked!
