Does anyone find themselves getting a lot of styes in their eyes (that rhymed) ?
Lately, I seem to be getting them nearly all of the time. One eye clears up and then the other one starts. Would appreciate some feedback.

Oh yeah, I've been prone to those since High School it seemed. Make up seems to provoke them for me, as well as if I rub my eyes a lot. Warm compresses really help ease the pain, and drains them faster.

I had one once, when I was a young teen and it was from stupidly sharing eyeliner.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

a moist, very warm teabag, lightly pressed against the area, will help drain a stye very quickly, really it works..
