Blepharitis: Blepharitis, (a common disorder where the eyelids themselves become irritated) can be treated with warm compresses and supportive care. The viral form of conjunctivits(or "pink" eye) can be treated similarly; and in most mild cases simply be observed. In some cases an anti-allergy medication [like a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or an over the counter claritin] can be taken to alleviate the itchy sensation.
