    You should spend an hour reading ocular threads in this forum by using the search box top right corner. I have a post on treatment options for phenotype 6.

    It all depends on how bad your symptoms are. First, go the doctor. They can dispense medication to keep it under control because it becomes progressively worst, and especially if you don't keep in under control it's horrible.

    This is my fix: I take 2 pills a day of Minocyclene (helps thin out the liquid that forms in your eyelids and keeps the swelling down to stop the clogging). This condition is chronic. Mine acts in severe hot and cold weather.

    I use Thera Tears and petroleum jelly. DO NOT use water and soap on your eyelids, it will cause more drying and cracking of the skin. Use Thera Tears to rinse out your eyes a couple of times when eyes get itchy. Then apply a very light, very light smear of petroleum jelly to your eyelids (pat in on). I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have petro jelly. It actually soothes and softens the skin, but most of all, it keeps all those dry skin flakes from falling into your eyes and causing the annoying itching. It's the only relief I have found and I thank that he gave me the smarts to fix this. Ocular rosacea is not a condition you can make go away, but you can treat it so that you don't have a lot of suffering. Hopefully this helps.

    If occular rosacea is caused by demodex, and you treat for demodex successfully, I'd disagree that occular rosacea cant go away
