Homeopathy for Styes
A stye is a boil affecting the root of an eye-lash. It is characterized by a hard swelling at the lid-margin that is tumour-like as well as painful.
 Homeopathy for StyesA stye is an infection of the sebaceous glands of Zeis at the base of the eyelashes, or an infection of the apocrine sweat glands of Moll. Sometimes it forms on the outside part of the lid. At times infections of the meibomian sebaceous glands line the inside of the eyelids. They also cause a red bump underneath the lid with only generalized redness and swelling visible on the outside. Styes are short in duration (7-10 days without treatment).

Treatment of Styes

Pulsatilla 30: This medicine is an excellent remedy for styes, especially affecting the upper eye-lid, with burning and itching. There may be a discharge of profuse thick, yellowish mucous from the eye. A weeping nature and thirstlessness are other features of using this medicine.

Silicea 30: This is mainly a remedy that can hasten the resolution of the stye, by bursting it open. A feeling of chill making the person wear warm clothes even in summer, obstinate constipation and a desire for cold foods or drinks are other pointers to this remedy.

Staphisagria 30: This medicine is useful for recurrent styes that come one after another and leave behind hard nodes. This remedy can be tried if Pulsatilla fails.

Sul 30: This can be mentioned as a good medicine to start the treatment of a person with recurrent styes and an unhealthy skin. There is heat and burning in the eyes. A disinclination to stand and acute, unbearable hunger at 11 a.m. are other features of this remedy.
