I am having frequent eye styes in both eyes every month also having eye allergy from 10 years. Using antibiotic to cure it. What is the permanent solution for it.

1. Antibiotic cannot cure allergy. You will need to use some anti-allergic drug like Olapatadine (like Pataday once daily in morning or IF2 twice a day) 2. Frequent rubbing of eyes can cause recurrent stye in both eyes. If there is any other lid pathology also this can happen. Use good anti-allergic drugs, a good lubricating drop (like Refresh tears 3-4 times/day). Avoid rubbing your eyes. If you have irritation wash with cold water or place a cube of ice over your closed eyes lightly for half a minute. Also consider taking some omega 3 fatty acid supplementation (like seven seas tablet once daily)
