    The stye is the eyelids glands acute suppurative inflammation which is caused by staphylococcus aureus infection. According to the affected gland tissue, it can be divided into different outside stye and internal hordeolum outside stye. The system eyelash hair follicle and sebaceous gland inflammation belong to within stye meibomian gland of acute suppurative inflammation. Usually the eye stye is mainly caused by the eyes infection. If you lack of sleep, your eyes may easily get in the invisible bacterium which will let them get infection. In addition, the lack of sleep will also cause the black circles under the eyes. Your eyes will be easily looked not beautiful with not bright expression in the eyes. The lack of sleep will also be bad for your whole body. You'd better not have the good rest, with no stay up late at night.

    The stye in the eyes is also called blepharitis, is the acute inflammation of glandula sebacea or tarsus. There are four reasons to the happening of stye. First, over fatigue of eyes, it leads to the opening of gland congested by contract of muscle around the eyes socket. Two, the bacterial and virus get into the opening of glandula sebacea. Three, reduced from food allergy. Four, diabetes induce to the symptoms. As for the first reason, it may happen by the over fatigue of the eyes. Stay up too late, it is bad to your whole body as well as the eyes.

    Styes are usually caused by staphylococcal bacteria, which often live right on the skin surface. Our bodies are coated with billions of friendly bacteria that coexist with us. When the conditions are just right the bacteria feast on dead cells and other debris, resulting in the tender pimple. For this reason, I do not think lack of sleep with cause stye. So to prevent styes, you probably need to practice better eyelid hygiene. That means regular lid scrubs to remove excess germs and cellular debris. Put a few drops of mild baby shampoo into a teacup of warm water and stir. Using a cotton wool ball, gently brush the soapy solution along the base of your eyelashes while keeping your lids closed. If you don't have time to mix up baby shampoo, scrub your closed lids with a soapy flannel in the shower.
