When a doctor tells u to use baby shampoo to ur eyelids does that mean u can't wear liquid eyeliner? And washing eyeliner off with soap is bad or no?

Not a problem: The baby shampoo is recommended because your doctor wants you to keep the lids clean to treat blepharitis (a dandruff like condition of the eyelids).

Once the lids are cleaned, you can use eyeliner and you can wash it off with soap if needed. Read more
