What is the best remedy for a sty inside lower eye lid?

Warm compresses: A stye is due to a clogged oil gland. Use warm compresses over the eyelids for 10 min at least 4-6 times a day. This will help open up the clogged oil gland. You can also clean your eyelids and lashes with diluted baby shampoo to clean the oil glands twice a day. If this does not work see your eye doctor for further treatment. ...Read more

Sty (Definition)

A sty is when an oil gland of the eyelid margin gets clogged and the oil backs up and forming a pocket of stagnant oil and the eyelid becomes inflamed. A hordeolum is the acute phase or beginning stage of a stye, and a chalazion is the chronic phase (where the oil becomes more granular, thick and the skin inflammation resolves, but there is still a ...Read more

On my lower eye lid where that tiny hole is, it's swollen & red, the redness is spreading down my face. Should i be worried? I think I have a stye but i don't know, I have had them before

It : It may be a stye, because there are glands near that 'hole' which is the entrance to your tear drain system. Or it may be an infection of the lacrimal (tear drainage) system. Hot compresses will help both, but if it gets worse in the next 24-48 hours, you should see an ophthalmologist for treatment. Antibiotic drops with a little steroid mixed in works well for both of these problems. If medical treatment does not work, in-office minor procedures can be done for both problems. ...Read more

Stye: If this occurred rather suddenly, it probably is a stye, which is a blocked oil gland of the eyelid. It can become secondarily infected and can spread to adjacent tissues leading to cellulitis. Most of these styes respond to very warm compresses 3-4 times/day for 10' followed by gentle massage with a washcloth containing a small amount of baby shampoo. After a week, the stye should nearly resolve ...Read more

Yes: Given the timing of the symptoms, most likely it is a stye and not a chalazion. Continue using wash compresses as much as possible. It the pain or swelling worsens, then a topical or oral antibiotic may be required. ...Read more

Often, : Often, a series of hot compresses during the day will work, with shorter duration for each compress. Many of my patients have success with 3 or 4 compresses, 5-10 minutes each session. The potato works well, some patients have mentioned that they have used a hard-boiled egg the same way. This holds heat longer than using a washcloth alone. If this does not work within a week or so, then eye drops, or surgical removal will be successful. See your eye doctor if compresses fail! ...Read more
