Stye


About
A common bacterial infection of a little canal within the lid. Does not respond well to antibiotics. The best treatment is to hold hot compresses against it. The bump is a collection of fluid in a little sac inside the lid.


Notes
  • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
  • Antibiotics might be necessary for styes that will not heal.
  • Never squeeze a stye it could spread to the blood stream.


Advice
  • In order to promote healing, place a hot compress on the stye for ten minutes four to six times a day.
  • Those who frequently develop styes should increase their vitamin A intake.
