Yes: It requires diligent, at least daily, "scrubs" of the lashes and eye lid margins with baby shampoo (or commercially available small impregnated gauze pads) and use of warm wet compresses. Topical and/or systemic antibiotics may also be necessary.

Treatment, yes: This is a chronic condition that requires daily attention there are numerous treatments/therapies, but no "cure" that will make it go away forever.
