I have a history of sties, but this time it appears to be infected and the majority of the swelling is under my eye under the skin. I'm a little concerned about the infection.

Pain when blinking is my number one symptom. A bump would appear the next day.

Comment from: harvey, Male (Patient) Published: March 19

I am a 30 year old male and I have had a stye since the beginning of January. I have been using antibiotics, but recently I have noticed the appearance of what looks like tiny additional styes on top of the original stye. Very strange, but not painful.
