I have a stye on each eye and a friend of mine told me to wash my eye with baby shampoo. Does that work?

I have a stye on each eye and a friend of mine told me to wash my eye with baby shampoo. Does that work?

No: A study was done looking at efficacy of various treatments for stye (a nonmedical term for chalazion/hordeolum). The only effective treatment was warm compresses. Sometimes baby shampoo has been recommended for blepharitis, but unless done right, its not recommended as it may irritate the eye further. Typically, if the chalazion isn't improved after a month, incision and drainage may be needed. ...Read more

I have little cysts on my eyelashes I usually wash them with baby shampoo but then they come back the following day what else can I do?

Don't touch them: Infection of the eyelid oil gland is the cause of many cysts. Sweat gland cysts, near the tear ducts, are common, too, along with inclusion cysts, considered harmless. An eye doctor can sort them out. Good personal hygiene is key: keep hands & fingers away from eyes, new cosmetics after infection, not sharing make-up. The baby shampoo is a good idea, too, as are warm compresses if uncomfortable. ...Read more
