An External Eyelid Stye is the most common form of stye which varies from one person to another. This type of style is identified by the presence of a red bump on the surface of the eyelid. An External Stye can last for several days after which it heals on its own. An Ayurvedic Doctor or a Homeopath diagnoses a stye by examining the appearance of the eye and in most cases, it does not require any tests.
