In brief: Yes, but often recur

Conservative treatment for this chronic, intermittent and frustrating condition involves lid hygiene and warm compresses.
Scrub eyelid margins gently with gauze pad or clean cloth, warm water, and mild soap like baby shampoo twice a day. Also bathe lids with warm water and massage gently to unclog oil glands and prevent stye formation. Sometimes antibiotic/steroid drops or ointment needed.
