Health Check: what caused my stye and can I get rid of it?

Styes occur when glands on the eyelid become blocked and infected. When these glands become infected, the oils they secrete, which usually have a smooth olive oil consistency, become thick and waxy and resemble more of a toothpaste-like texture. This obstructs the glands and they fill up, and more bacteria can grow. It’s a similar process to when pimples form on your skin.
