Are styes contagious and what can I do about them?


Styes aren’t contagious, and most of the time you can treat them at home. Styes are very common. It’s kind of like a pimple on the eyelid. They will usually go away in a few days if you apply a clean, warm compress to your closed eyelid for 10 to 15 minutes, 3 to 4 times a day. Andrew Iwach, MD, tells you what you need to know about styes and how to take care of them. For more information about styes and other eye conditions, visit the American Academy of Ophthalmology's EyeSmart website: https://www.aao.org/eye-health/diseas...
