Specializes in Ophthalmology

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.
