Red Eyes (surrounding skin)

Hello @alexsteph,

I am sorry to hear about your problem with the reddened skin around your eyes. I have had blepharitis which makes the eyelids very red (and in my case produced recurring styes as well) and I remember well how tough it was to deal with red eyes. Sometimes, skin problems of that sort can be helped with a course of tetracycline. Has anyone suggested that? Also, have you seen an ophthalmologist or just dermatologists?

I did notice a stye on my right eye, it was small and only painful for a few days before the pain went away and the bump disappeared a day or so after. I haven't tried tetracycline, but I'll mention the possibility of Blepharitus in my derm appt tomorrow and see what they say. Fingers crossed this gets sorted soon !
