    It is possible for you to get conjunctivities because of your stye on your eyelids which will affect the look. You will look horrible. The stye may be caused by the coming invisible bacterium. It could make your eyes get puffy and swelling. If the infection gets serious, your cornea will get affected. Your conjunctivitis will appear. You need to use the eye drops to get rid of the bacterium. You could also use the warm compress to make the eyes feel comfortable.

    Yes, it is. Former cases have proven that when you have styes on your eyes, you are likely to develop conjunctivitis if they are not treated with sufficient attention. Both styles and conjunctivitis can be caused by bacteria. Don't rub your eyes and pay attention to the sanitary conditions on your eyes when you have styes, otherwise you have a great chance of developing other eye problems.

    Well, yes, eye stye can just cause conjunctivitis. And generally speaking, we know that a stye is inflammation of the eyelid, and it often occurs inside one of the small glands lining the eyelid. And according to some experts, it can be caused by infection from bacteria, which is the most common cause. At the same time, conjunctivitis is an eye infection which will cause the white of the eye to turn red. And for the causes, it is also caused by infection too. And that is why eye stye can just cause conjunctivitis. So to avoid it, just stay away from bacteria.
