A stye is a red, uncomfortable lump that often contains pus and develops on the outside of your eyelid, though it can also occur on the inside of your eyelid. Sties can resemble boils or pimples and are located close to the edge of your eyelid.

The pain or discomfort of a stye may be alleviated in the interim by placing a warm washcloth over your eyelid, although a stye will typically start to go away on its own in a few days.

Causes–The staphylococcus bacterium, which causes the majority of these infections, infects the oil glands in the eyelid, which results in a stye.

Symptoms–.The main symptoms include increased sensitivity to light, pain, redness, and tenderness in the affected area. A small pimple may also appear.

Risk factors-The likelihood of developing a sty is higher if you:

Using unwashed hands, touch your eyes

Put in your contacts without first washing your hands or thoroughly disinfecting them.

Wear eye makeup all night long.

Using out-of-date or stale cosmetics

Suffer from blepharitis, a persistent inflammatory condition affecting the edge of the eyelid.

Experience facial redness due to the skin condition rosacea.


Styes can be treated safely and effectively with carefully chosen homoeopathic medicines, without any negative side effects.
