Eye Stye - Treatment And Home Remedies To Treat Stye
Alternative name :: Sty, Eye sty, Eye Infection, Hordeolum
What is eye stye?
A stye (sty) is an infection of a follicle or gland at the base of an eyelash. A small boil may appear at the margin of the eyelid but, in some cases, the infection can be so deep that only swelling and redness can be seen. Stye typically result from a staphylococcal bacteria infection or from a clogging of the oil glands around the eyelashes or inside the eyelid, but can be triggered during times of stress.
More than one Stye can occur at one time because the bacteria may spread to another follicle. Lancing a Stye that is red and inflamed is not recommended as this may spread infection.
Causes of eye stye
Styes are caused by infection of the sebaceous gland in the eyelid. The infection is usually caused by bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus. Stye may occur in the upper or lower lids, causing redness, swelling and soreness in some cases.
Painful styes also can occur internally within eyelids, usually in association with a blocked gland (meibomian) that provides lubrication for the eyelid.
