See an eyeMD: Neomycin and polymixin B target gram negative bacteria and are not very good against gram positive bacteria. Blepharitis is a disease of gram positive bacteria. Neomycin is also very toxic and can cause allergic and toxic dermatitis over time. Please see an ophthalmologist to help you solve this problem and also explore the possibility of rosacea.
