What is an
Internal Eye Sty ?
By Darry J. Oswald
An internal sty causes a red, painful swelling, but its
location prevents the pus from appearing on the eyelid. A stye
develops rapidly, producing an elevated, painful, red, swollen
area on the eyelid.
Most chalazia develop further from the eyelid edge than styes.
A sty is a bacterial infection that appears as a small bump
along the edge of the eyelid. A sty resembles a pimple and is
located at the edge of the eyelids. Chalazions usually occur
farther from the edge of the eyelid than styes, and tend to
"point" toward the nose side of the eyelid.
If the eyelash stye lasts for more than 3 days or the infection
appears to be spreading, consult an eye doctor. A sty is an
infection of one of the follicles from which the eyelashes
grow. A problem that can occur along with, or be mistaken for,
a stye is an inflammation or infection of the eyelid
Discharge from the infection causes the well known symptoms of
eyelids stuck together on wakening or having a "crusty"
appearance. Your eye doctor may recommend replacing your
contact lenses after the stye has healed to prevent recurrence
or spread of the infection.
In some cases, however, an untreated stye may lead to
cellulitis (a more widespread infection of the skin) of the
eyelid. If the eyelash stye lasts more than 3 days or the
infection appears to be spreading, consult your eye doctor.
The initial treatment for styes is usually warm
the eyelid at least three or four times a day. In children who
are susceptible to styes, gently cleaning the eyelid with a
clean, warm washcloth can help prevent the pores from becoming
At first, a chalazion looks and feels like a stye:
eyelid, pain, and irritation. Resembling a pimple on the
eyelid, a stye can grow on the inside or outside of the lid. As
the stye grows, the eye may water and the eyelid may be painful.
DO NOT attempt to squeeze a stye or any other type of eyelid
bump. Facial edema may also be caused by a stye, or growth on
the inner or outer eyelid.
