What is Stye?

A stye forms near the edge of the eyelid on the outer or inner side as a red, painful pimple-like bump that usually contains pus. The stye is caused by the infection of staphylococcus aureus bacteria, which infects the sebaceous glands of the eyelid. Eye makeup, skin conditions such as rosacea, and seborrheic dermatitis contribute to its development.

What is Stye


Styes are transmitted through direct contact with infected materials like hands, towels, or makeup applicators. Avoid touching the eyes with unwashed hands, sharing personal items, and using contaminated makeup to prevent transmission.

The following recommendations can be followed to prevent a stye or eye infections:

  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Wash your face and remove makeup every night
  • Make sure contact lenses are thoroughly cleaned
  • Avoid touching your eyes with your hands, especially if they are not clean

Signs and Symptoms

Signs and symptoms of stye are:

  • Painful bump on the eyelid similar to a pimple or boil
  • Swelling of the eyelid
  • Tearing
  • Pain and itching
  • Crusting of the eyelid


A Stye can be treated with warm compresses to aid healing. If symptoms persist you should receive prescription antibiotic drops, ointments, or pills. More severe cases will require surgery to relieve pressure and drain the discharge.
