What is a Stye?
A stye, also known as a hordeolum, is described as a small red bump or inflammation that appears in or around the eyelid. Styes are often caused by a bacterial infection at the base of an eyelash or on the inside of the eyelid. Similar to a pimple, styes are the result of glands in your eyelids becoming clogged with bacteria, dead skin cells, or other debris. Very rarely do styes effect both eyes simultaneously, although it is possible. Styes tend to cause discomfort and are tender to the touch. A stye is more likely to occur if you suffer from blepharitis, a condition that causes the base of the eyelashes to become red and swollen.
What are Stye Symptoms?
Some signs that you may be experiencing a stye include:
- Red, swollen bump on lid(s)
- Discharge of puss from the stye
- Crusting along the edge of the lid
- Swollen eye lids
- Itching or burning around the eye
- Excessive watering of the eyes
- Sensitivity to touch and general discomfort
Are Styes Contagious?
A stye can be contagious, however, the spreading of a stye from one person to another is very rare. The bacteria responsible for causing a stye is carried on our skin and is generally not harmful. Styes are the result of that bacteria clogging the oil glands on the eyelid, causing irritation. When this bacterium gets trapped along the edge of the eyelid, it often results in a small, red bump. Be sure to avoid spreading the bacteria by washing your hands frequently. Additionally, do not touch the stye or the area surrounding the infected eye if possible.
Should I See my Doctor?
Although styes can be unsightly and cause discomfort, they are generally not cause for serious concern. If left untreated, most styes will improve within a week or so. People often seek treatment to reduce symptoms, allowing them to live more comfortably until symptoms have subsided. If you experience severe eye pain, change in vision, continued redness, or irritation of the eye, we recommend you contact your doctor or physician immediately to rule out any serious causes or conditions.
How to Prevent a Stye
There are several precautions that can be taken to help prevent styes. Most importantly, avoid touching your eyes whenever possible. If you do need to touch your eye, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before doing so, as this is one of the easiest ways to cause an eye infection. Additionally, be sure to take proper care of any products you use in or around your eyes. This includes making sure your cosmetics are not expired and being used only by you. Finally, if you wear contacts or glasses be sure to properly clean and maintain them.
Home Remedies for Styes
There are several at home remedies in addition to using Stye Relief® Ointment that can help speed up the healing process. Some of these remedies include:
- Using a warm compress on the stye for 10-15 minutes several times per day can help to open up the inflamed glands, allowing the puss or oil to drain more easily from the stye.
- Wash the infected eye with mild soap and water. This will help to keep the infected area clean while it is healing. We recommend putting Stye Relief® ointment on the lid after you have cleaned it for optimal results.
- Similar to a warm compress, you can also use a warm tea bag on the lid to help alleviate some of these symptoms. Black tea is most recommended, as it is effective in relieving swelling, as well as containing antibacterial properties.
- If the stye is incredibly painful you may want to take some Ibuprofen or Tylenol to help alleviate some of the pain and discomfort. Ibuprofen specifically can help with the inflammation you may be experiencing.
- Avoid using cosmetics or contact lenses if possible. These items may irritate your eye and could potentially delay the healing process. You also want to avoid spreading any bacteria from the stye to these items, as this may result in another stye.

Question: What is a Stye?

Question: What is Stye Relief®?
Answer: Stye Relief® is a homeopathic lubricating eye ointment. It is the first of its kind, and it relieves symptoms associated with styes.
Question: How does it work?
Answer: Stye Relief® works via the traditional homeopathic mode of action, which is that it utilizes small amounts (micro-dilutions) of ingredients that would cause stye symptoms in a larger dose. These ingredients in a micro-dilution gently assist the immune system to address symptoms associated with styes.
Question: Should I see a doctor?
Answer: Homeopathic remedies have no side effects, and have a 200 year track record of being safe for children, and adults. However, we do recommend seeing a doctor to rule out any serious condition.
Question: How long should I use it before I get relief?
Answer: Every individual is different, and since the homeopathic active ingredients are stimulating the body’s response, results will vary from person to person. While we do have reports of people getting results in a few days, generally results will be gradually noticed between one to several days.
Question: What reactions, complications, or side effects are there?
Answer: Stye Relief® is an all-natural, homeopathic product. It has no side effects or interactions with any other medications that you might be taking. Homeopathy has a 200-year track record of safe and effective relief, and our products are safe for infants, children, and adults. We recommend visiting a doctor to rule out any serious conditions.
Question: What’s the difference between Stye Relief® and competitors?
Answer: Stye Relief® is the only product on the market that is both homeopathic and an ointment. There are other ointments on the market, but they are not homeopathic. There are other homeopathic products for the treatment of Styes, but they are in liquid form, so the drops run off and do not stay on the affected area. With Stye Relief®, the ointment will stay in place and help you to feel better.
