Avoid prolonged: Steroid/antibiotic drop by using daily warm compresses, with massage afterwards of the closed eyelids and lashes. Dietary omega3 is very helpful. If you already take Doxycycline that may help, but please note that it may affect the potency of your oral contraceptive. Please use additional means for birth control!
