Boils and styes are two forms of infections that may arise in various body parts. Whenever a hair follicle or an oil gland is infected, they appear as painful, red, pus-filled infected pimples called boils and styes when they appear on the eyelid.
Furthermore, boils cause a red, painful lump to grow beneath the skin as pus gathers. Meanwhile, a stye is a type of boil that appears on the eyelid. It is an inflammation of the eyelid caused by a Staphylococcus bacterium infection. Styes also develop a hump that contains a small quantity of pus.
Boils and styes will usually go away on their own, but there are certain things you may do at home to assist in treating them.
