Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear that you are suffering from repeated styes. I would recommend that you actually consult an ophthalmologist because you need to get these infections cleared up once and for all. It may be necessary for you to take a course of antibiotics which specifically target the Staph infection. In the case of Staph infections the source of the infection in the body is often the nose and no matter how often you wash your hands, transmission between the nose and eyes will still take place until the bacterium is eradicated. So please see an eye specialist because our sight is precious. From a dietary point of view, I trust that you are taking an iron-folic acid supplement like Ferro-folic to help with the anaemia? if not, ask the eye specialist when you see him/her to prescribe treatment for the anaemia too. Also discuss the use of a complete vitamin and mineral supplement with the eye specialist to boost your immunity in general. Supplements like Centrum or Supradyn Forte for example, are good sources of most of the vitamins and minerals.
I hope that the styes will now be eradicated, but Please visit the eye specialist.
