For 2 years I have had BIG problems with terrible burning, sore eyes. I cannot bare it any longer and am basically going to have to kill myself if I can't get it to go away. I've been told by multiple ophthalmologists that it is due to Blepharitis, I have been treated with hot compresses, cleaning lid margins, artificial tears, lubricants, antibiotics, etc. etc. And nothing has worked, my opth suspected allergy.
I recently saw an allergy specialist who did a pin prick test, I'm allergic to dust mites among other things. The problem is he's prescribing me non-steroidal anti-inflammatorys, I've already had two different steroid anti-inflammatorys for the inflammation by two different opth's, both were very suprised when the drops had no effect. I'd assume non-steroidal are weaker and aren't going to produce a drastically different outcome?. I don't think the allergist knew i've had these previous treatments. Should I call and ask to be given antihistamine pills/drops such as allegra and patanol?, or are non-steroidal anti-inflammatorys still a better course of treatment despite me having things such as a strong month-long dexamethasone treatment in the past. My instincts tell me I should be getting antihistamines.
Thank you very much for any responses, I'm so desperate for relief.
P.S one other thing I was pondering earlier, was if theres a possiblity my bio washing powder could be irritating my eye eyelids?
