Treat infection: Recurrent styes are usually due to an underlying infection, most often on the eyelid margins called blepharitis. This can be treated with warm compresses, eyelid scrubs and local and/or systemic antibiotics. See an ophthalmologist who can diagnose no treat your problem. Unfortunately it may take some time to work.
