A Stain On The Eyelid, Enlarged And Festering?
Afternoon r nPreviously, Wednesday, I asked HealthReplies.com about stye. Yesterday the stye of the right eyelid at the tip near the nose started to get bigger and there was pus that had not yet burst. It turned out that there were 2 pus rounds in 1 stye. the other is deeper near the tip of the nose. One outside. Because the pus had not yet burst, when I slept and woke up, the contents of the pus came out a little, but the stye had not yet diminished. Previously, I had a stye instead of the tip of the nose and if the pus bursts when the contents of the pus have enlarged, they just burst and the stye is smaller. But not yet, do you wait for the pus to come out until it all shrinks?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A stye (hordeolum), regardless of the location of the eye, has the same formation mechanism as a result of inflamed glands in the eyelids. If your stye appears on the inside of your eyelid, then the inflamed gland is the Meibom gland. Normally, these glands function to produce oil that helps maintain moisture in the skin area around the eyes. However, due to infection (often due to Staphylococcus aureus bacteria), these glands can become inflamed, resulting in a lump that is painful, reddish in color, contains pus, and is prone to rupture.
In general, stye is not a dangerous condition. Often times, stye that gets bigger in size will rupture or deflate on its own without leaving any lasting impact. After rupture, sometimes the stye will not immediately disappear, but it can take several days for the inflammation to subside. You can overcome this condition in the following ways:
Clean the pus secretions that come out of the stye using a clean gauze soaked in NaCl so that it doesn't spread to other eye areas
Compress your eyelids with a cold compress so that the inflammation subsides
Elevate your head slightly while sleeping
Avoid rubbing or touching the area around the eyes excessively
Use glasses temporarily to protect your eyes from dust and other irritants
Don't use too thick cosmetics around the eyes
Diligently wash your face and wash your hands with the right soap
If the stye doesn't get better in 1 week, or it recurs too often so that it interferes with your activity and vision, there's nothing wrong with seeing your doctor or ophthalmologist immediately. With proper handling, for example through the administration of drops, eye ointments, to surgery, usually stye is not an incurable disease.
