Accutane and blepharitis

Accutane helps control oil gland production, which is counter to causing blepharitis. Blepharitis is caused by an overgrowth of normal skin bacteria, like seborrheic dermatitis or a bacterial infection. Accutane actually helps control blepharitis and oil gland production near the eyes. But your Accutane didn't cause this at all. Best of luck.
