Stye News and Research

RSS
A stye or sty, also known as a hordeolum, is a small, painful red lump that develops on the inside or outside of an eyelid. It is caused by a bacterial infection that can develop inside the root follicle of an eyelash, inside the apocrine gland or within the sebaceous gland attached to the follicle. The stye takes only a few days to develop.
