I didn't start on Armour until after they had reformulated it, but I never had any issues. I was able to ramp up fairly quickly and easily with no side effects.
I used to be very prone to stye's before I healed, but they aren't directly related to these infections, even though Bart is known for producing eye symptoms for some people, as stye's are due to a blocked gland:
"Chalazion (or stye) is the result of a blocked meibomian gland orifice (*a special gland @ the rim of the eye lid); patients with blepharitis and rosacea are at higher risk for this condition. Patients describe an eyelid lump and erythema with spontaneous drainage in some cases. On examination, there is a subcutaneous nodule in eyelid with surrounding erythema and edema. The nodule may come to a point where yellow material is seen just beneath the skin. The patient should be referred to an ophthalmologist if there is any question that the nodule may represent something other than a chalazion. Warm compresses three times per day for ten minutes each time will lead to drainage and resolution in the great majority of cases. If warm compresses do not lead to resolution after one month, referral to an ophthalmologist is required for incision and drainage. In cases of recurrent chalazia, treatment of underlying, predisposing conditions such as meibomian gland disease may be necessary."
Found 3/4 of the way down this page: www.antimicrobe.org/e34.asp
And there is a lot of information about
Meibomian gland disease online - with alternative treatments - available online, if you find that you match up with those symptoms.
I hope you find some relief soon. I hate styes!!
