Child getting frequent stye infections. Need permanent cure

My son has his third stye in about 3 weeks. It started with one in the right eye, and when that one cleared one popped up in the left eye. That one cleared last week, and now one is developing in the right eye again. Is it possible that the problem is something other than a stye? If not, is it normal for them to go from eye to eye? Thank you!

Hi Mann,

Thank you for your query.

It is not unusual to have repeated stye in the eye. You should ensure that hygiene is maintained and the eyes washed frequently. If it was due to low immunity then infection would have been present elsewhere too.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
