I have had surgery from styes and they were gone but it was painful afterwards. Now im starting to get them HELP! What is the BEST way to get rid of styes???
•A sty (sometimes spelled stye and medically referred to as a hordeolum) is a tender, painful red bump located at the base of an eyelash or under or inside the eyelid.
•Application of a warm compress or warm washcloth to the affected area for 10 minutes, four to six times a day, can speed rupture of the sty and aid in the relief of symptoms.
•Styes are common and are generally harmless.
•A chalazion (a form of scarring of the glands in the eyelid that may include the formation of cysts) is the most common complication that develops from a sty.
