Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelid rims which can cause them to become red and swollen and is something that is said to account for 1 in 20 reported eye problems in the U.K. The symptoms can include burning, soreness or stinging in the eyes and crusty or itchy eyelids. This is often caused by a bacterial infection or skin complication such as seborrhoeic dermatitis or rosacea.
Whilst it is not usually serious it is a long term condition which can result in repeated episodes and it is said to be important to manage this with a routine of cleaning the eyes and finding ways to reduce the discomfort. Many of our customers who suffer from Blepharitis inform us that applying warmth to the affected area by using our WheatBags® has been a great help to them.
Clear Prospects Ltd manufactures WheatyBags® microwave heat packs which have been tested to safety standard BS8433:2004. We are not Doctors and our products are not medical products (our heat packs are simple microwave heat packs that provide warmth and comfort to the area in use on the body). If you are unsure, we recommend you consult your doctor before using heat packs though we would appreciate any comments you have on the above in order to share the results with new customers we have seeking news on the use of heat packs.
