A 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).
