Sty Inside Lower 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
Used to get a sty alot now on my lower eye lid on the flat part above the hair line I get clear bumps I scratch them off but they always come back??
Can a stye get worst before it gets better? Doing warm compresses for 4 days. Stye seems to not change in size. It's on lower outside lid.
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 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?
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.

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 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.

After a week, the stye should nearly resolve ...Read more

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
