Eyelid: I agree that blepharitis affects the eyelash. Your eyelid condition may be a reaction to makeup or hair spray. If there's associated pain, tenderness or redness, apply warm compresses and I would seek a prescription for an antibacterial ointment that is suitable for eye use. If itching is a main symptom instead, a corticosteroid ointment suitable for eye use may be a better treatment.?see eye MD
