Which antibiotic or medicine works best to get rid of a stye and can it work to eliminate a sty within 24 hours?
There is a common medicine you can obtain at virtually any pharmacy worldwide that will get rid of a stye fast. Technically speaking, this medicine wasn’t designed for the treatment or prevention of eye styes. It's purpose is to heal other conditions. However, a doctors have discovered that this medicine has a very positive side effect. This positive side effect helps to cure a stye incredibly fast, sometimes overnight. It also prevents recurrent styes from happening again.
How fast you begin taking the medicine will determine how quickly you eliminate the stye. It’s important to take the medicine right away. Otherwise, the gland duct can become severely clogged and the stye could become a chalazion—those can last a year.
Will the medicine prevent future styes?
This medicine will heal existing styes. The medicine will also prevent secondary styes for a week or more. If you sense a stye is beginning to form after that time, you will need to take the medicine again to stop it.
Once the stye clears. Keep a lookout for new styes. One way to know if a new stye is beginning to develop is when you blink your eyelids. If you feel a small stinging sensations when you blink, it means a new stye is starting to form.
If you take the medicine when you notice that stinging sensation—the stye will never develop and your eyelid will not become red or swollen. Nor will any bump form.
What is a chalazion anyway?
A chalazion is an unhealed stye. It’s a stye that did not rupture and leak the pus matter. Think of it like a pimple. If that pimple doesn't pop, the pus matter inside the stye will harden—then it is termed a chalazion. Treat the stye before that pus hardens or it may require surgery to remove it.
It is not known if this medicine can treat a chalazion. However, based on how the medicine works, it’s possible. Either way, results will likely depend on how long the chalazion has been present.
What is the name of the stye medicine?
Technically it is not a stye medicine, it is an antibiotic called Doxycycline Hyclate. Doxycycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic which has a long half-life in the body.
Doxycycline doesn’t work like most antibiotics work by inhibiting the growth of microorganisms because the bacteria that causes a stye is naturally resistant to staphylococcus aureus, which is the bacteria that causes a stye.
Doxycycline actually works by restoring tear stability above normal allowing the gland openings to enlarge and purge themselves from any obstruction, such as pus and dead cells.
