What is a Stye?
A stye is caused by a blocked oil gland (meibomian gland) in the eyelid that becomes infected. It results in a swollen, pus-filled nodule on the upper or lower part of the lid that is inflamed and infectious. The most frequent cause of styes is staphylococcus aureus. Styes can be uncomfortable, red, and painful. A stye is often confused with a chalazion – chalazia are smaller than styes and are not painful. The good news is styes are usually harmless. However, for people with meibomian gland dysfunction, recurring styes can be an issue.
Symptoms of a Stye
Stye symptoms may include tearing, crustiness around the eye, or a scratchy feeling in the eye. A stye may be mistaken for a chalazion. (A chalazion is a blocked oil gland on the eyelid that also causes swelling, but a chalazion is not caused by an infection.)
Treatment for a Stye
Most styes clear up in 7 to 10 days. To treat a stye at home it might help to clean your eyelids with a commercial eyelid scrub (We highly recommend our eye lid cleanser.) and apply a warm compress for 5 to 10 minutes twice daily. Wash your hands first and never squeeze the stye; also try not to rub your eyes. If you normally wear contact lenses, use your glasses until it’s healed. If a stye doesn’t improve within 48 hours, see your doctor—you might need antibiotic or anti-inflammatory eye drops, or you might need to have the stye drained.
Treatment for Recurring Styes
Recurring styes are associated with meibomian gland dysfunction / blepharitis. The inflammation resulting from these two conditions causes dry eyes and styes. TheraLife Eye Enhanced will restore your tear secretion glands’ ability to produce their own, well-balanced tears. TheraLife can help relieve dry eyes with your own natural tears and create a balanced, healthy environment within the eye that will prevent the growth of styes. Use Avenova Lid Cleanser to clean eye lids, prevent future infections, and recover from blepharitis. Get this All-in-One Eye Enhanced Starter Kit and put yourself on the road to recovery!
