Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to Health care magic

I am Dr. DADAPEER K, an Ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

I reviewed your history.
It seems from the history that you are having ocular rosacea. It is a condition which affects the eyes and the skin.
The probable etiology for this is supposed to be by autoimmune mechanism.

The treatment of this condition is by the use of steroids and artificial tears eye drops.
Lotemax is a steroid eye drops and it is required for treatment of the condition.

The other treatment options are use of artificial tears and maintaining lid hygeine by the use of lid scrubs.

The condition usually resolves to this treatment but treatment is usually required for 3-6 months depending on the severity of the condition.

The other treatment options which I would like to suggest are use of immunosuppresant eye drops like cyclosporine eye drops.

Hence I advice you not to worry, this condition can be treated but treatment is required for a long time. Do consult your treating doctor and discuss with him regarding these treatment options.

Hope I have answered your question and the information is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for further questions.

Thank you
