My optometrist told me to always be aware of any redness, swelling, sty type inflammation and so on because he said these can be one more Crohn's symptom and they can be quite serious.  I'd never had any troubles.  Now all of a sudden in the past few months I'm seeing these things occur often, maybe every couple of weeks.  Does anyone else suffer with these?  They will hang around for a few days and go away on their own, but they are a little scary.  shocked

My eye are red sometimes. My left upper eyelid little swallow and I would have dull pain in the upper eye area. Wonder if the pain is the eye itself or the eyelid. I am also have blood blister and ulcer in my mouth. Boils on my head and rash on my body. IBS not yet confirm with crohns beside the Serology 7. Doctors could not identify the cause.

see blepharitis in wiki:
as there is more than just 1 remedy
I found that phrase "sufferers secrete a modified oil " regarding rosacea but it doesnt have a citation so i dont know exactly how the secretion is different but it has something to do with free fatty acids. I am not saying you are eating too much fatty acids just saying that they are present and not sure why.
