Quick and Safe Ways To Get Rid Of A Stye

A stye is an inflammation of the eyelid associated with a small collection of pus. In most cases, the infection is caused by Staphylococcus bacteria. 

It is sometimes known as a hordeolum.

Although uncomfortable and incredibly common, styes are not generally a cause for concern. Most styes go away on their own within 1 week without the need for any treatment. As soon as they rupture (ON ITSELF), symptoms tend to improve rapidly. 

Styes very rarely affect both eyes simultaneously. An individual will generally have one style in one eye. Styes are a result of the glands getting clogged due to excess bacteria or hardened oil glands. 

Stye Symptoms 

  • a lump on the eyelid
  • swelling of the eyelid
  • Itching and soreness in the eyelid
  • redness
  • blurry vision
  • discharge of mucus from the eye
  • the feeling that there is an object in the eye
  • discomfort when blinking

Cause of Stye

  • Using expired cosmetics
  • Not removing makeup before bed
  • Not disinfecting contact lenses before putting them in
  • Eye rubbing with dirty hands
  • Poor nutrition
  • Sleep deprivation

How to Reduce and Get Rid of Stye

Apply BaexLash serum that contains these following ingredients: Simply wash your hands and apply a small about to your stye, repeating several times per day. Just like how you'd apply BaaexLash before bed.

Coconut Oil - We love coconut oil, and it can be a great asset to you when treating a stye. First of all, make sure to use only organic, unrefined coconut oil, as this is less comedogenic than regular coconut oil (meaning won't clog pores). This oil has antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties that can benefit those with a style. 

Castor Oil - Cator oil is another oil that can be useful for sys, but make sure you use organic, hexane-free castor oil. Just like coconut oil, it has hydrating properties and can assist in reducing inflammation. 

Additional TIPS

1. Use a Warm Compress (5-10min) will heat up this hardened oil which will lead to a more liquid oil and better gland expressibility. We recommend a warm compress four times daily when you have a style.

2. Never, EVER, Try to Pop a Stye. A stye is an area of the face that is called "Triangle of Death," which can be just as dangerous as it sounds. Since a style is an active bacterial infection, if you try to pop it and the infection goes in deeper, instead of expressing out (like a pimple), then it can cause a deeper infection in the eyelid, called preseptal cellulitis. Alternatively, it can cause an infection of the eye, called orbital cellulitis or even worse, an infection in the brain, called meningitis, which can lead to death.

3. DO NOT wear Contact Lenses during an Active Infection. COntacts increase the bacteria count in your eyelids because it is a piece of plastic in your eye disrupting the tear film. If you have a style, not wearing contact lenses will help aid in the healing process.

4. See your Eye Doctor. If the stye persists, the doctor may prescribe a topical antibiotic cream or antibiotic eyedrops. If the infection spreads beyond the eyelid, oral antibiotics might be prescribed. 

Hope this helps our baes. If you have BaexLash already, you may make great use of it.
