It is a bacterial infection on the eyelids.
A case of Styes: Styes is a suppurative infection of a marginal gland of
the eyelid. This also represents an inflammation of the sebaceous gland
of an eyelash.
This photograph represents a case of infected styes. This lady patient was an old patient
of mine taking treatment for her other complaints. During the treatment she developed
this infection and came for consultation. She was a bit worried because the pain and
swelling of the eyelids and wanted to know whether she should take treatment from some
allopathic doctor, as homoeopathy is usually not of much help for acute complaints of such
boil or abscess( in her opinion). I assured her by saying that homoeopathy is equally
effective for any such boil or abscess and ,rather, it works faster and the total time
required for complete recovery may be even less than what it takes for some other
system of treatment. 6 doses of Bell. 30 was given to the lady to be taken twice for
three days followed by 6 doses of placebo to be taken twice for three days and the
lady was left with an instruction to report after a week and to consult any time for
any complication whatsoever during this period. The lady came to report only after
about 15 days and I was happy to find her in fully recovered. On questioning why
she did not come to report after one week and moreover the doses were in fact
only for a week; she replied due to her other preoccupations and more so because
she got relief almost within 4- 5 days of taking my powders only. Once she sensed the
relief she had no urgency of coming and taking the pain of reporting and waiting
unnecessarily for hours for my consultation. She started taking medicines for her other
constitutional problems and no other medicine was required for her this styes.
