    Question:

    Is it normal for a stye to turn yellow and have red spots on it?


    Answer:

    stye can have multiple colors. Normally it would be quite red, but it can also be bluish like a bruise. If there is blood beneath the skin, which would appear like a bruise or black eye, that can become yellowish overtime as it heals. It’s possible that overlying this yellowish change there can be inflamed areas or some blood underneath, which may appear as red dots. This appearance would be unusual but not impossible.
