Sorry, no etymologies found.
If you start looking at ISV-502, I use the term mid-margin diseases; blepharoconjunctivitis is a part of mid-margin disease.
You may get frustration on the lids, some of your glands meibomian glands on the lids may not function appropriately and people may use terms that you know if you do go to a eye doctor that maybe the Blepharitis or you have blepharoconjunctivitis and so for the treatment of such diseases you need both an antibiotic as well as an anti-inflammatory agent namely you need something to reduce the swelling.
