In brief: Stye
Styes in the eye form when the small ducts in the glands get blocked.
They usually go away on their own but if they do no we use a warm compress to try to open them up in more significant cases they may need to be lanced . You should see your pcp if this is not improving.

In brief: Blocked gland
A stye is nothing more than a blocked oil gland.
They are rarely infected, and never cause a threat to your eyesight. You can try hot compresses.... A sock filled with beans heated in the microwave is a good hot pack.
