What could be the cause of repeated styes?
What causes an inflamed swelling on the eyelid to reoccur again and again? I suffer from frequent and painful styes. I regularly get a sty in both eyes, sometimes many at once. The styes are persistent and can last several months. Sometimes a sty comes to a head and ruptures, disappears, only to occur again.
What makes a sty happen again and again? What could be the cause of recurrent eye styes? This all started about 6 months ago. At fist they were sporadic and now they are continual. My general doctor said to put toothpaste on my eyelid. What? I tried that and it didn’t work.
Does anyone know what could be the cause of repeated styes?
