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

What else should I know?

  • Our online assessment will help determine if you are a good candidate for treatment
  • Treatment with prescription antibiotic drops or ointment may speed recovery if applying warm, moist compresses to the area does not provide relief
  • Never try to drain or squeeze the area yourself
  • Symptoms should completely resolve in about one week
  • Just answer a few questions to get started with your online visit
