Bacterial infections at the eyelid's edge, affecting the hair follicles of eyelashes, are called Eye Styes. They have the appearance of pimples or boils. This infection causes hair follicles to get blocked and swollen, causing itching, discomfort and pain. If one of the tiny glands at the base of eyelashes is infected with staphylococcal bacteria, it causes a stye. This infection is frequently spread from one hair shaft to the next through rubbing.

  • Stye Growth Pattern
A stye typically takes between three and seven days to grow. While inflammation may impair vision, a stye does not. Early symptoms of styes are: Eye or eyelid inflammation, pain, light sensitivity, difficulty in blinking, blurred vision and redness in the eye.

Occasionally, tearing of the eyelid may happen. Usually, styes start with small pimples. Within a few days, this fill with pus and consequently burst and heal on their own. Once pressure is relieved, inflammation and pain subside.

  • Simple Remedies for Styes
To be quite honest, if what we are talking about really is a stye, paying out a lot of money seems a crazy thing to do.

It might be an idea to try some of these ideas, first of all:

  • Rub a little clove in water, apply over the stye for relief and cure
  • Sit an aloe leaf lengthwise. Place pulpy, soft side on the eye.
  • There is nothing like a warm compress for a stye. Apply for 10-15 min, 3 to 4 x a day for a few days. Add a little Lavender essential oil for extra soothing and healing properties.
A few guava leaves, wrapped in a warm, damp cloth and used as a compress reduce inflammation, redness and pain. If the stye does not respond to any of this, surgical drainage might be necessary after all.
