more about Sty

External Hordeolum

  • This is an infection of the eyelid caused by staphylococcal bacteria.  It causes the eyelid to be red, swollen, and tender.

  • Warm compresses (warm wet clean wash cloth) applied multiple times during the day are helpful in relieving pain.
  • Antibiotic eye ointment such as Bacitracin or Erythromycin may be helpful.
  • If the sty persists more than 48 hours, an incision (to allow it drain) by an ophthalmologist may be necessary.
