Clogged eyelash follicles

I was told by the eye doctor that i had some meibomitis/blepharitis. My eyes feel pretty fine from treatment but on my upper lash line on several eyelashes there are whitehead looking things growing around the eyelash. and the eyelash growing is alot thinner, so I can only assume there are blocked follicles and they really hurt at times on several places on both upper eyelids. Does anyone know anyway to clear this up??? Should I ask the eye doctor for an ointment?? or I heard some things about castor oil, any thoughts??? I clean my eyelids everyday, and not excessively because I know that can make it worse. thank you so much

Re: Clogged eyelash follicles

This is most likely an infection and needs an antibiotic. Blepharitis is very difficult to completely clear. Took me 2 1/2 years to win the battle with constant special care. Omitting eye makeup will go a long ways in helping.

Best to toss all eye makeup, it is contaminated and will keep reinfecting.
