Is my blepharitis TMS? I'm only 19 years old and I have blepharitis supposedly. I don't have all of the symptoms of blepharitis - my eyes aren't swollen and the skin on my eyelids isn't red. The main problem is that my eyelashes have been falling out and I wake up with excess crust on my eyes in the morning. My eyes, I noticed, only feel itchy or dry when I'm in a stressful situation or if I'm dwelling on negative thoughts. I'm thinking about stopping my warm compresses on my eyes and fully convincing myself that it's psychological. Do you think that would be best? Thanks.
