Sty from Eye Makeup: Girls, Beware

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

A lump or swelling of the lids may be due to hordeolum, commonly known as sty. (A sty (hordeolum) is a red, painful lump near the edge of your eyelid that may look like a boil or a pimple.) In most cases, a sty heals on its own within a few days to a week, leading to relief from symptoms. A sty especially develops in women when she shares a cosmetics or cosmetic eye tools with other people and touch, rub or scratch their eyes with dirty hands. Quick remedy for this would be applying warm compress on the infected area as often as possible until the swelling stops. If the swelling subsides but a small hard lump persists, time to go to the doctor because it may already need a minor operation.

I agree. Sometimes girls forget to throw expired or overly used make-up items. :) Also, if you don't mind, may I be in your blog roll? I'll include you in mine if you'd like. :)
