What is Staphylococcal Hypersensitivity? What is the treatment for Staphylococcal Hypersensitivity?

 

Staphylococcal hypersensitivity is when the eye has an inflammatory response to the staphylococcal organism located on the lid margin. This will cause eye irritation, redness, sterile ulcers, and tearing. Typically, one will have chronic staphylococcal blepharitis and marginal lid disease. Treatment consists of treating the underlining condition (blepharitis.) Often topical antibiotic ointments and steroids are used to control the bacteria load and inflammatory response.
