so lately, i've been getting my fair share of styes. styes. is that how it's spelled? today it is.<br><br><br><br>
i'm guessing it's stress or something i'm allergic to. i've never had allergies before but i've neve lived here before either...and the stress thing - well, self explanatory school nonsense in that regard.<br><br><br><br>
they go away in a day or so they just kinda hurt like hell for a bit and rarely can you even see them so thank god they aren't nasty looking. but it's still a pain in the ass. i think i had conjunctivitis last week but that went away within a day too..so maybe not. i don't know what's up with this eye stuff. eyes freak me out in the first place so you can imagine how overjoyed with having freakin' styes in my eyes. ohh. la la. it rhymes.<br><br><br><br>
so any happy home natural remedies like teabags or something? thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Actually, even what doctors recommend is a natural home remedy. lay a hot, moist towel or teabag if you like over your eyelids for 15 minutes everyday. Also be sure to thoroughly clean any make up you wear, and if you wear contacts, be careful to only touch your eyes and eyelids with clean hands. Contact wearers tend to get more styes. I don't get all out styes, but I get little skin problems on my eyelids. Too much touching and not enough cleaning, I think.<br><br><br><br>
But I imagine stress could play a role like it does with acne.

thanks, i'll try just the tea bag or washrag thing tonight. i wear contacts and no make up and wash my hands all the time if i'm going to putting my contacts in or something, so it's weird that i would get crap in that area...but yeah, with stress who knows. thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
