Question:
What is treatment for staph infection of the eyelash/eyelid?     

Answer:
Gently scrubbing your eyelids with a clean cloth soaked in warm water three to four times a day can help. Applying bacitracin ointment twice a day to lids works as well. An ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) can prescribe this for you.
