A daily eyelid and lash hygiene routine that includes use of a warm compress and removing dirt and debris from your eyelids and lashes can help treat and prevent painful stye or chalazion.
Did you know? A stye is an infection in the eyelid that causes a tender, red bump near the edge of the lid. A stye (also called a hordeolum) is caused by bacteria and can occur at the base of an eyelash (external stye / hordeolum) or within one of the small oil glands within the eyelid (internal stye).
When oil glands or hair follicles get clogged by makeup, dead skin or dirt, bacteria can get trapped inside and cause an infection. This infected gland is called a stye.
