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 bump/nodule in the eyelid). ...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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I had a stye that was very noticeable on the outer lid but gone and now puffing in the inside of the lid - been 6 weeks, how long till it goes away?
Warm compress: A stye is caused by a blockage of the oil glands on the eye lid margin. It will cause redness, tenderness, and swelling in the area. Usually you will want to start warm compresses to the area 2-3x/day to try and reduce the swelling and help with drainage. You should see your pediatrician for confirmation as there are other causes of eye lid swelling. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
