A stye usually stems from a bacterial infectionthat causes a blocked eyelid oil gland or clogged eyelash follicle. Stress and hormonal changes also can bring on a stye. Skin cancer also can cause styes and chalazia, though this is rare. Also, a stye left untreated can sometimes turn into a chalazion.

How do I cover up a stye? Makeup can help if your stye is especially red or large. A green concealer stick can help counter the color red–since it's opposite red on the color wheel–so put a little on your finger and gently blend the color in until it looks more like your natural skin-tone.

Are styes caused by poor hygiene? Styes are typically caused by bacteria, most commonly Staphylococcus. Stye formation is spontaneous, although it can be associated with poor lid hygiene or an underlying condition such as blepharitis or acne rosacea. It can also be caused by systemicinfections.

Are there eye drops for styes? Many drugstores sell eye drops that may help relieve the pain of styes. These remedies will not heal the stye, but they may help ease the-pain.
