    I had prk surgery my dr prescribed Durezol 4 times a day and then tapered me down to 2. I noticed my eye lids were hurting and very sensitive to touch, but didn't think it was related. Two days after I went of off the medication I broke out in blisters around my eyes, VERY painful. Dr said it is peri oral dermatitis caused by thus drug!
