It is very bulky, but nothing serious. One morning your son gets up with a granite on his eyelid, flush with his eyelashes and at first glance he seems to have his eye swollen. It stings and itches, and causes the eye to water without ceasing. But there is no need to worry. It is just a stye, a condition of the skin that will be eliminated without problems or sequels provided that some recommendations are followed. But, why do styes come out? Is there something that causes it? Causes of styes in children

. It produces bacteria called streptococci and staphylococci, bacteria that are inside our body. In most cases it is due to a sebum obstruction. Its appearance does not respond to any health problem or because of vitamin deficiency. It is a benign process that affects both adults and children, although it is much more common among children.Types of children's stye

. If your child has an external stye, you will see a slight swelling at the edge of the eyelid, attached to the eyelashes. It's like a small granite, but it hurts and bothers a lot. Sometimes that little bump may have a white or yellowish dot, which indicates inflammation.If, on the contrary, your child has a granite located on the inside edge of the eyelid, very close to the eye, what he has is an internal stye. And it is also very painful.
