I am a 59 yr old male who is constantly getting styes. I suffer from hay fever and other allergies and have been told I am prone to blepheritis. I just had a retina detachment and am under the care of a doctor for that. Over the past 2 years I have been getting styes on both eyes, for which I was told hot compresses. I now have a stye on the eye with the retina problem and I have 2 styes on the other eye. They just won't go away. Do you think I could have some kind od infection in my system causing these styes? Do you think I need to go on maybe Tetracycline for an extended period of time? I don't know how much more I can take. I'm a school teacher so my eyes are very important.
