In brief: Blepharitis treatmen
The most common cause is blepharitis, commonly known as "granulated eyelids.
" this can go thru phases where the lids look quiet and other times red or inflammed. This is like having eczema, or dandruff, along the eyelids and leads to an inflammatory response that gives the redness. There are other causes, including dry eye and emotional upsets, i. E. Crying and rubbing the eye.
