A stye can be both painful and unsightly. When a gland within the eyelid becomes infected, it causes a painful red bump, and may sometimes drain fluid. Antibiotic drops, in combination with other therapies, should relieve your symptoms quickly.

Stye triggers and freatures:
- Glands at the edge of the eyelid can become clogged from makeup, skin debris, or secretions
- The trapped fluid within the gland promotes bacterial growth
- The growing bacteria cause inflammation (redness, pus, and pain)
- A stye appears usually as a single lump within the eyelid
- Develops over a few days
- Can be tender and painful
- May develop a white “head” and possibly drain
- Occasionally the infection will spread to the area outside the lid – this is a more serious condition
