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

A chalazion (stye): Can increase in size before surfacing and then expressing itself. Using warm comprises aggressively with gentle massage to break up solidified material will allow the material to surface and exit thus reducing the size. If in the rare case it does not resolve then your Ophthalmologist can remove it for you. ...Read more

I have a small stye that has formed on my lower lid. Can I use tobradex (along with warm compress) to heal quicker?

Not helpful: Very warm (not hot) compresses applied 5 times per day for 5 minutes each time is the best option. Tobradex cannot penetrate a stye as it is sealed off from the outside. ...Read more

I have had a stye in my upper eyelid for 10 days. It appears more swollen than originally, it is rounder, lower on lid and looks puss filled. Normal?

I have had a stye in my upper eyelid for 10 days. It appears more swollen than originally, it is rounder, lower on lid and looks puss filled. Normal?

Stye: No it is not normal. It would probably be best to call your doctor. With that in mind I would not be surprised if you were referred to an eye doctor.

Sounds crazy but at age 6 I broke 5 pair of glasses - Dad was not happy! Since then I can't live without spectacles.

Hope all goes well for you. ...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

I have what I think is a stye on left lower lid, there is a bump on the outside corner but eye itchy and pull down lid it's real red and some spots?

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

2days ago I woke up with a bump on lower lid and redness on eyelid. Now my under eye is swollen puffy and red. Classic stye progression?

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

Stye care: These are very common and care be treated conservatively 90% of the time. A warm compress and los scrubs open up the oil glass which are blocked. (http://eyewiki. Aao. Org/Stye). Make sure the heat is constant for ~3-5min. Uncooked rice in a stocking moistened and place in the microwave will hold heat for 5min. If this is not curative after 1-2wks then check with an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

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 more
