Styes

A stye is an infection that causes a tender red lump on the eyelid. Most styes occur along the edge of the eyelid. When a stye occurs inside the eyelid, it is called an internal hordeolum. A stye – also called a hordeolum – usually only affects one eye, although it’s possible to have styes in both eyes or to have more than one stye in the same eye. Your vision shouldn’t be affected.

STYES

There are two types of stye: They are:

  1. External stye (external hordeolum): a swelling that develops along the edge of your eyelid; it may turn into a yellow pus-filled spot that is painful to touch
  2. Internal stye (internal hordeolum): a swelling that develops on the inside of your eyelid; it’s usually more painful than an external stye

CAUSES OF STYES

  1. Styes are usually caused by an infection with staphylococcus bacteria (staphylococcal infection)
  2. Long-term blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids) may also increase the risk of developing a stye
  3. Styes are fairly common and you may have at least one or two during your lifetime

SYMPTOMS OF STYES

  1. Small pea-sized lump on the top or bottom of eyelid
  2. Localized pain and swelling of eyelid
  3. Redness and burning in eyes
  4. Itching and irritation in eyes
  5. Untreated Styes, can lead to complications such as:
  6. Chalazion (Styes on inside of eyelid)
  7. Periorbital cellulitis (Infection of skin around the eyes)
