Probably can't: Staph blepharitis is, in part, due to an allergy to metabolic by-products of the staph in your skin. Hot compresses nightly, sometimes using a baby shampoo to clean crusting from lashes helps. Occasionally an antibiotic ointment, with or withou steroids is helpful. See your ophthalmologist, and work out a treatment plan.
