• Can a Stye Begin As a Red Spot?


    Question:

    Can a stye begin as a red spot just inside of the lower lid?


    Answer:

    Yes, a stye is an infected hair follicle, and can begin as a red, tender spot on the inside of the lower lid — as long as that spot is close to the base of the eyelashes. If it is further away, it may represent a clogged oil gland or other lesion.
