I had a sty forming and it was sore and swollen. I alternated between warm compresses, salt water eye baths and cold compresses. It was relieved and almost gone after 2 days. The ice seemed to help the most with discomfort and swelling.

I’m a 71 year old female. I have a style under the bottom of my eye, it is very red and painful, both eyes water, and I’m suffering from bad headaches, as well.

I have a history of sties, but this time it appears to be infected and the majority of the swelling is under my eye under the skin. I'm a little concerned about the infection.

Pain when blinking is my number one symptom. A bump would appear the next day.

I am a 30 year old male and I have had a stye since the beginning of January. I have been using antibiotics, but recently I have noticed the appearance of what looks like tiny additional styes on top of the original stye. Very strange, but not painful.
