I would like to know if anyone has the following and if so, what is it?
I wouldn't say I have ocular rosacea. I go through periods when my eyes feel gritty and sore etc, but to look at them, you wouldn't know I had a problem, so I pass it off as minor.
From time to time my left eye is somewhat blood shot. This usually coincides with major and prolonged flushes and is usually worse when I wake up in the morning.
* Ok, my problem symptom is this.
I get tiny blister type things along the rim of the eyelids. That little ledge under the eyelashes, which sits at an angle from the eye.
They come and go. When I do get them, even one, I know as I get a prickling irritation.
The last time I was at my optometrists, I had a couple and was told they are probably, (??? cysts). I have since forgotten the complete name. She did add she didn't have any other rosacea patients, so she wasn't 100% sure. Nor could she offer any advice on them.
Recently, they started getting worse and my eye lids feel odd.
The minor discomfort caused by them, is NOTHING compared to the facial rosacea, which drives me insane.
Years go, I had flaking eyelids. Long before I developed rosacea. I don't have flakey skin now, but my eyelids have developed an odd, mildly itchy feeling. I wondered, can you get seb derm just in the eye area, and, can it be on the face too, but not produce the classic, itchy, flakiness?
I have looked at so many photos, on the web, as well as on here, but I don't seem to fit the standard description.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
