Eye Stye, Sty in the eye, Eye Infection Stye Treatment

Stye or sty is an infection of eyes where gland at eyelid becomes infected. A pimple/limp like thing appears at the eyelid, which can be visible at outside as well as inside of eyelid. This is not harmful to the vision. This problem could occur in any age. There are two types of styes: external (on the outside of the eyelid) and internal (on the underside of the eyelid).An external sty starts as a pimple next to an eyelash. Most external sties do not last very long And internal sty causes a red, painful swelling, but its location prevents the pus from appearing on the eyelid. The sty may disappear completely once the infection goes away. However, it may leave a small fluid-filled cyst that can persist and may have to be cut open. Styes are usually harmless and will go away after several days on their own as your body fights the infection. However they look bumpy and ugly. There are some home remedies for styes that may be helpful for you.

Stye initially brings pain, redness, tenderness and swelling in the area, then a small pimple appears. An infection bacterium is frequently transferred from one hair shaft to another when rubbing it to relieve itching.Eye stye occurs when staphylococcal bacteria infect one of the tiny glands at the base of the eyelid hairs and then becomes inflamed. An infection bacterium is frequently transferred from one hair shaft to another when rubbing it to relieve itching. An eye stye occurs when staphylococcal bacteria infect one of the tiny glands at the base of the eyelid hairs and then becomes inflamed. Sty is a pimple or abscess on the upper or lower edge of the eyelid. It is a sign of an infected eyelid gland. Sties are usually harmless and rarely affect your eye or sight. Sties can occur at any age and tend to recur elsewhere in the lid.

Treatment of Eye Sty

Common Treatment of Eye Sty

  • Antibiotic drops may also be used to help fight the infection
  • Boil a handful of acacia leaves in two cups of water to make a decoction and apply it as compress on the eyelids
  • A grated potato used as a poultice.
  • Surgical drainage of the stye may also be necessary.
  • Boil 1 teaspoon of coriander seeds with a cupful of water like an herbal tea preparation to wash the eyes 3-4 times a day.
  • Antibiotic creams may help recurrent or persistent styes.
  • Avoiding touching or rubbing the eyes
  • Warm washcloth can help prevent the pores from becoming clogged.

A stye is a small inflammatory tumor of the nature of a boil, which exposes itself near the free edge of the eyelids, particularly near the inner angle of the eye. The germs, usually staphylococci, grow in the oil or sweat glands of the eyelid. The inflammation surfaces at the margin of the lid as a tender, red swelling. It is attended with some fever or more or less suffering. Within a few days, the styes comes to a head and then opens to let pus drain. Pimples similar to styes also may form on the inside of the eyelid and are basically the same type of infection. Occasionally, however, these infections on the inner eyelid may spread and involve the whole lid. Styes are rarely angerous and they usually heal by themselves. Occasionally, a stye does not heal completely and leaves behind a firm, red, cystic lump in the eyelid. These cysts are not painful themselves, but in some cases they rub against the eye, and new acute styes may develop within them recurrently.
