Sty (external hordeolum)

A sty (sometimes spelled stye and medically referred to as a hordeolum) is a tender, painful red bump located at the base of an eyelash or under or inside the eyelid. Application of a warm compress to the affected area for 10 minutes, four to six times a day, can speed the rupture of the sty and aid in the relief of symptoms.
