Can You Wear Some Mascara With A Stye In Your Eye
It's risky: You could but the stye is a sign your mascara reservoir could be harboring infectious bacteria. I would suggest you use hot packs consisting of a warm wash cloth or put a small potato in the microwave for one minute and then place that inside a wet wash cloth and put this on the stye for 10 minutes per day until the stye disappears. Alternatively, see an ophthalmogist for a prescription drop. ...Read more

Can you wear contacts with a chazalion ? It use to be just a stye now I guess it's a chazalion it's been on my eye for months now !
Have had a stye for 3 months, greatly improved but still very noticeable, doesn't hurt but is very ugly, y can't I wear contacts? it doesn't hurt my eye when I eat contacts but I'm wondering if it makes my eye worse.

I have a stye in my upper lid near the duct, and it hasn't popped and is red and painful, can I wear makeup? Do I have to throw out all my eye makeup?
Stye: I recommend no make up for now; wash with warm water, apply warm compresses; a prescription eye ointment will help; warm compresses and gentle cleaning may get you to resolution also; make up is not contra-indicated; this happened because an eyelid gland got plugged; so twice or three times daily washing with warm water and wash cloth will be preventative. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a stye in my left eye. Will I be able to wear my contact lenses and wear makeup? Is there a eye drop I can buy to quickly get rid of this?
Yes, probably: The best initial treatment for a stye is warm compresses applied several times a day. Contacts are OK, make sure to wash your hands thoroughly before/after. Avoid eye make-up, as you can contaminate it, making infection more likely when you use the make-up again. If you experience pain, vision changes, sensitivity to light, a sandy/gritty sensation or discharge from your eye, seek immediate care ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
