Has Anyone Ever Had An Internal Stye In Their Eye

Recommended Posts

Woke up on Monday morning with my upper eyelid swollen and by the evening I could barely open it

At first I thought it was some allergic reaction but later I realised it was a stye

Tuesday was the same and my eyelid looked like rubber, in the evening about 11pm the stye seemed to burst after I put hot flannels on it and drained out quite a bit. It relieved a lot of pressure and was leaking for quite some time. When I woke up I thought it was all OK.

My eyelid no longer looks that bad, it just looks like ive got a bit of a lazy eye, certainly doesnt look like rubber anymore and I have no pain

But my eyelid is still not completely fine and there is still a small white lump underneath it. Im hoping this will go but its been almost 48 hours now and it doesnt feel like its drained at all. Will this eventually go or do I need to go the hospital to get it taken out

I'm guessing that the small white lump is a mass of solid cack which will free itself. The liquid-like pus round the edge of it has leaked out and the "middle bit" is still there. You might be able to dislodge it as long as you don't put your eye out but it will come out by itself anyway. I had something like that in my armpit once.

But, I am just guessing.

Time for my tablet.

I had an ulcer in my lower eyelid. I actually had an attack of everything - spots, mouth ulcers and the eye thing. Three weeks later it was still there and very red and bulgy so I went to the GP who had just seen another woman with the same thing. She said just put something hot on the outer eyelid every day for a few minutes. It went after about another three but there was a definite lump for weeks.

Are you all taking 5000 IU of Vitamin D daily or are you simply suffering the consequences of a weak immune system due to very low Vitamin D levels?

From your description it's either a chalazion or bubonic plague*. Probably the former. Keep up with the heat treatment, but it could last for months. Alternatively you can have it scraped out by a specialist after a referral from your GP.

* or not. Free medical advice is worth the money you paid for it.

I had a bad spell of getting chalazions about 10 years ago, had 2 surgically removed. One upper lid one lower lid.

Touch wood I wont get them again.

I think I sometimes got a numb and ichy feeling when one was flaring up and I quickly applied a warm flannel to get rid of it.

How big were they?

This one is not even noticeable from the outside

It just looks like a lazy eye lid, and you really have to lift the eyelid up to see it. Its also clearly white but it doesnt look like its dislodging.

I also had a ganglion cyst on my hand a few years ago. It hurt to even pick up a glass or hold a steering wheel. I enquired about getting it removed.

Anyway I suppose I had it for about a month or two because I forgot about it and one day I realised it had disappeared.

Only problem with is lump is that it makes me look like Ive got learning difficulties

Sounds as if you are just stressed and run-down. It is not going to disappear overnight and it sounds that you have been fortunate in that the hot flannels worked so fast.

You need to give it some time but you also need to keep - no pun intended - an eye on it just in case it gets infected. If it does it is off to the GPs straight away - no hesitation.

They used to rub a gold wedding ring on styes to try to get rid of them.

I get blepharitis from time to time, sometimes develops into conjunctivitis or a stye. Advice I've been given:

Get more sleep.
Apply hot compress.

Then massage eyelid gently with cotton buds dipped in a solution of water & sodium bicarbonate (you probably shouldn't do this if it's a cyst or similar).
If it doesn't sort itself out after a few days go to the doctor, or at least a decent pharmacist.
If you normally wear contacts lenses, don't for a while even if you can get them in.
Spend less time staring at a screen.

I find Vit C helps.
So does eating fewer carbs generally.
And get more sleep.

Yes Vitamin D3.

Vitamin C helps too, but it can't replace D3 and Vitamin C is easy to obtain from food while D3 isn't (we are supposed to get most of it from sunshine, which isn't a problem in Africa but certainly is in the UK).

I have a big tub of that on my desk. Don't think I've ever taken any though.

Do you just talk to it then? What is the point of having it if you do not use it? What else do you have on your desk?

I bought them for him indoors cos he spends loads of time indoors... He only took a few and got bored and stuck them on my desk. Have had one now.

Other stuff on my desk:

Some hello kitty stickers my niece gave me

A mug with a photo of our old car on,

some expenses I will claim for one day

The magic porridge pot book.

A bluetack kangaroo sadly look a bit tired now.

And much much more.

Do you have a small African child on your desk gently fanning you with a large banana leaf ? Always wanted one of those.

No. I quite often have a cat pestering me for about an hour in the morning though.

Does this comply with your workplaces health and safety regulations ?

I am deeply concerned.

Not really. I do an assessment of my work desk once a year.

I do tidy it up sometimes.

"Hello Kitty" sticky knickers? From a vending machine in Osaka?

my recipe for these sorts of nasties:

..like the poster with blepharitis said.

for styes,use a hot teabag after you've made a brew as a compress...the tanin in it is natural antiseptic.

for the tougher stuff.

warm water with baby shampoo and cotton-bud around the eyelid daily.

plus for the insides(this works better than chloramphenicol drops IMHO):a couple of capsules of each of the following daily.

1)high strength garlic oil

2) cod liver oil/fish oil

2)flaxseed/starflower oil.

I've got another on the other eye and a huge mouth ulcer. When it started I had a smattering of red spots too on my cheek. Which is sort of what happened last time.
