Sty Under Upper Eyelid Treatment
Warm compress: A sty is a moderately inflamed "sweat duct" in the eyelid. The ducts get blocked. I tell my patients to get a damp wash cloth and pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Test it on your wrist to make sure it's not too hot. Place warm compress the closed eyelid for about5-10 minutes and re-heating as necessary. If it does not get better in a week or gets worse go to your eye doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
Warm compresses: A stye is also known as an external hordeolum, which is an acute purulent inflammation of the eyelid margin. Both internal and external hordeola can be managed with warm compresses, placed off and on for about 15 minutes at a time about 4 times a day. If it doesn't resolve in 1-2 wks and hardens, ophthalmology referral for incision and curettage is appropriate.See 2 more doctor answers
Infected sty under upper eyelid in l eye x 3 wks, now a sty in r eye. Both eye drainage/crusty. Iv abx done, oral steroid done. Oral abx done.?
Stye treatment: If you have styes on both upper lids, then you likely have have underlying blepharitis (lid inflammation) which is causing your meibomian glands to become occluded and infected (like a pimple). Treatment is usually warm compresses for at least 12 minutes followed by lid massages with possible antibiotic/steroid combination eyedrop. I would see an eye care provider to make sure that's what it is.See 1 more doctor answer
Chalazion: A chalazion is a small bump in the eyelid caused by a blockage of the inner eyelid oil gland. It is caused by a blocked duct in one of the meibomian glands. These glands are located in the eyelid (oil gland) directly behind the eyelashes that produce a thin, oily fluid that lubricates the eye. If it bothers you, and ophthalmologist can remove it with surgery.
See your eye MD: You need to see your ophthalmologist to have it evaluated and determine whether surgical removal is indicated.
A small white pimple like bump appeared in the corner of my inner upper eyelid. It is tender to the touch and irritating my eye. Is it likely a sty?
Yes: 25 year old lady with upper eyelid bump and eye irritation. It is quite likely a sty or chalazion. You can use a warm compress applied to eye for a few minutes and then wash your eyelid/eyelash area with some baby shampoo. If the problem gets worse, see your physician for an exam because antibiotic ointment can be used. Try over the counter artificial tears for the eye dryness. Vision blur?

A million things: There are a ton of things that manifest as growths on the eye lids. Some are malignant. Some are benign. You should see a specialist and get your answer.
Probably a cyst: If the eyelid is not inflammed, not red, and not hurting, then you probably have discovered a chalazion, which is a cyst formed by the eye to seal off and prevent the spread of a stye. If it is not bothering y0u by appearance or by symptoms, you can ignore it as it will cause no harm at your age.
I had a stye on my upper eyelid, the swelling went away but now it's just red, can It swell up again?
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.
I have a bump on my upper eyelid. I was told it was a stye. Doing compresses and prescribed drops. It's starting to dry out. Do I still do compresses?
Yes: I recommend doing the warm compresses till the redness, swelling & soreness completely resolves. Remember to only use the eye medication for the prescribed amount of time. It's also a good idea to continue performing lid hygiene on a routine basis, especially if you're predisposed to styes. Good luck.
Several reasons: This is one of those problems where a visit to your doctor is necessary to figure out what's going on. Only after a thorough evaluation, including examination and possibly labs and other tests, can your doctor correctly diagnose you and treat you effectively.
I have an internal stye inside my upper eyelid. I've had it for 4 days and it still hurts. Is it okay to wear makeup?
Avoid if possible: The style is a clogged eyelid gland and wearing make up can potentially make it worse. Try some warm compresses for 10-15 minutes a couple of times a day followed by eyelid massage to try and open up the glands. If the entire eyelid becomes tender, red, and swollen, see your doctor...it could be cellulitis. Take care.
My daughter has a large stye on her upper eyelid and it's been there for nearly 2weeks. What does it mean when a stye turns black?
Breakthrough: A stye is a pus filled gland of the lid. If untreated, it will enlarge and eventually breaks through to the surface. If the area is not cleaned - and they are commonly tender at this stage - the material passing through to the outside can oxidize and turn dark to black. This should be cleaned with warm soaks and this may help clear it up. Otherwise see your ophthalmologist.
I have a stye on my upper eyelid it just came up this morning it is not as swollen as it was this morning is it ok to wear make up right now?
Upper eyelid got swollen. When I lifted up the eyelid below the eyelid there is a pop. It is not a stye and don't know what it is. Little pain is there?
Go to eye doc: Without seeing it, there is no way to know, but swollen eyelid and pain is not a good combination. See an ophthalmologist right away. Good luck and feel better.See 1 more doctor answer
