Stye (Chalazion & Hordeolum)

A stye is a reddish lump that resembles a pimple or a boil and is frequently filled with pus. It can be located on the outside of the eyelid, towards the edge, or on the inside, beneath the eyelid.

Styes are typically caused by an infection in your eye’s oil glands. It can appear quickly as a result of stress or hormonal fluctuations, an obstruction caused by eye makeup, or rubbing your eyes with dirty hands.

After a few days, the stye will usually fade on its own. To ease irritation, compress the eyelid with a warm washcloth. If there is any discharge, clean it with mild soapy water.
