Are styes contagious to other people? i have one, and i have a date tomorrow.

Styes are infections of the sebaceous glands of the eye. Like pimples, they form as bacteria build up in a clogged gland causing local irritation/inflammation. And just like pimples, they local infections and inflammatory reactions that are not contagious. You cannot spread a stye from one area to another on yourself and you cannot spread a stye from one person to another.

At home treatments for styes include cleansing the area with a sterile “eyelid scrub” and warm compresses five times a day.
