Pink Eyes : Stye

Our breakfast in the morning had a little twist by adding a little humor to it by my curious little boy.

D : Oh no Mama! Happened A eyes? Too pink? Oh no happen?
Me : A’s eyes has a teeny tiny germs on it.
D : Wow! Too pink. Wey Dodo pink eyes mama?
Me : You don’t need a pink eye baby because you’re eyes are okay. It doesn’t have those tiny germs on it.
D : Huh? No pink eyes Dodo? Yook mama! Pink Lips!

I swear mommies it’s too hard to explain sometimes to your kids to their level of understanding without making them confused. I have those times wherein I gasp for proper words and try to make them satisfied with my answer. Oh dear wisdom please stay with me always.

Yesterday, my little girl woke up with a stye on her right eyelid again. This is the second time it happened already. The first time, I nearly freaked out because both of her eyes were affected. Kawawa lang. But she doesn’t seem to be bothered by it. Kulit galore parin naman siya.

Thank you Uncle Google for the answers. I am not an expert on these bacterial infections and some other management I had in my memory bank way back nursing years was buried under my pillow with my anesthesia. J had to do the prime intervention with her because she struggles a lot and he is better at it.

Three simple home remedies for stye:
  • Handwashing. We should wash our hands before and after touching the affected area. We should clean our eyes from any dirt accumulated from it.
  • Warm Compress. Get a damp warm cloth and place it over the affected eyelid. It usually subsides in a week. But once it persists, I suggest seeking consult with a physician.
  • Apply anti-bacterial cream. Use only when the physician prescribes it.
