Child diseases and conditions





A sty is an inflammation of the eyelid caused by infection or blocking of one of the oil glands or eyelash follicles.
These may result from rubbing the eye with dirty fingers or due to rundown general health after measles, or some other infection.
A warm compress with a pinch of boric powder every 2-3 hours will help the sty to subside.
If it does not, medical advice should be sought.
Antibiotic eye-drops will help to prevent the spread of infection.
