Styes are Typically Accompanied by Swelling and Discomfort
A Lump on the Eyelid
Typically, a stye appears as a lump on the top or bottom eyelid near the lashes. Similar in shape to a pimple, they can be red, white, or yellowish.
Localized swelling on the eyelid is a common symptom of a stye. The swollen lid may be tender or interfere with vision.
Pain and Redness
A stye may make your eye red and uncomfortable. Pain, burning, or a scratchy sensation on the eyeball are all typical. Often, patients feel as if they have something stuck in their eye.
