Recurrent stye removal
USA (United States of America)
YesI had a stye removed on my other eyelid.
YesVisine, Erythromycin, Lotemax
YesI have glasses but I don't wear them.
I have two styes on my right bottom eyelid that I can't get rid of. I have been using warm compresses and taking medication that a doctor has given but it doesn't work. I've had this issue in the past and a doctor had to remove it.
I recently spoke to a doctor to see about excising or draining the styes and he said that it was bad because it would scar my eyelids, mess up the oil glands and give me issues in the future?
Does that happen when you get the surgery?
Thanks for your question
What you have is called chalazion not stye and you have recurrent chalazion. the main cause of recurrent chalazion is persistent belpharitis which is inflammation or infection of the eyelid margin. Read this article about treatment of blepharitis.
Extensive surgical removal of chalazion can cause scar of the eyelid. Steroid injectioncan sometimes be helpful for the treatment of chalazion.
