Suggest treatment for recurrent stye infetcion

Why do I keep getting styes back to back ? I clean my hands , my clothes , my blankets , my pillow cases etc I apply warm heat to it 3 times a day as I m suppose to but they keep coming back I get about 3 styes a month for the last 3 months and also after my stye goes away I get a big lump that is not painful but is a little red on the top of my eye lid

hi dear,
i understood your concern,
recurrent styes in your eye indicate persistent infection in your eye or your hands.
simple washing with soap and water cannot prevent infections in hand,so better wash with antiseptic solution like alchol bases or savalon.
for eyes better wash with cold water perodically,
i suggest better go and meet doctor he will prescribe anitbiotic eye drops your problem will be solved.
thank you.
