Baby Shampoo for Ocular Rosaccea
I have had rosacea and ocular rosacea for more than 20 years. My eyes have always been worse than my face and have always experienced redness, burning and itchiness. Sometimes the burning was so unbearable I could barely stand to keep my eyes open.
Since reading your newsletter about the teacher who started washing her eyes with baby shampoo, I have been doing the same thing. My eyes have improved considerably and feel so much better. I’m so happy because having red, burning eyes is incredibly uncomfortable and, to me, unsightly. In all the years I’ve had rosacea, not one doctor has told me to use baby shampoo.
