EXTERNAL EYELID STYE
An external eyelid stye is a red, painful bump on the surface of the eyelid. The bump may look like a pimple and be tender to the touch. An external stye can appear anywhere on the eyelid. However, it is most likely to form near the edge of the eye, where the eyelashes meet the eyelid. The condition is more common in children. It occurs when bacteria enter and inflame the oil glands.

Ophthalmologists can diagnose External Eyelid Stye through eye examination. He or she may also consider your symptoms. No other testing is usually required.

Practicing good hygiene can help reduce the risk of getting a stye. Prevent the spread of bacteria with regular hand washing and by avoiding touching the eyes unless hands are washed with hot water and soap.
