A client recently spoke to me about a conversation she had with her regular pharmacist about her recurrent sties. A stall is a red, painful lump on the edge of your eyelid, usually on the inside of the lid. It can be near the center or the inside or outside edge of the lid and the top or bottom lid. It may look like a reddish bump on the outside of the lid that’s about the size of half a pea. It’s usually quite painful and full of pus.

According to the Mayo Clinic’s online site, most stables are harmless and clear up in a few days. Placing extra warm compresses on the area for five to 10 minutes several times a day will also help get rid of them. A bacterium called Staphylococcus is responsible for most of the stables.

You can get them by touching your eyes with dirty or affected fingers, especially if you haven’t washed your hands carefully. However, they are generally not contagious from one person to another if you wash with soap and don’t touch your eyes. But more women than men get stitches, perhaps because they keep their eye makeup on for too long and borrow or use someone else’s.

What her pharmacist told her was that he is currently seeing a lot of customers with sties, customers who were previously not susceptible to them. And he also sees more other, mostly small, physical inflammations. There are some ointments for sties and occasionally your doctor may prescribe a mild antibiotic. But nothing is much use except the very warm to almost hot compresses.

The pharmacist unexpectedly asked her if she ate almonds often, an unusual question. She replied that she had eaten almond products several times a day, used almond milk in her coffee, had almond butter on her toast, and sometimes almond candy and almond cookies.

He suggested that they might eat fewer almonds and almond products, including corn and corn products and soy and tofu products, for a short time, at least until their eye infection (stall) subsided.

He said omega-6 products could be a problem and their use of high omega-6 oils like almonds, corn and safflower oils, sunflower, grapeseed and vegetable oils, as well as other omega-6 foods made with these oils, and Products also help reduce.

He also advised her maybe to eat more omega-3 anti-inflammatory foods like fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel, flaxseed and flaxseed muffins and cookies, walnuts, and foods that contain walnuts, olive oil, olives, and avocados (the latter are omega- 9 fatty acids). And for a while, cut down on your intake of peanuts, peanut butter, corn, and other omega-6 foods that are considered inflammatory foods. Even red meat, which is now mostly corn and soy-fed, may contain too much omega-6 for normal diet plans and to potentially switch to grass-fed beef.

Some foods contain both omega-3 and omega-6, such as: B. Walnuts, but the ratio is believed to make walnuts particularly healthy and they don’t appear to promote inflammation. He suggested making these little changes, especially if she had stables.

Some foods are more anti-inflammatory than others, and some foods can promote inflammation, especially if you eat too many of them, often without realizing it.

The client with the sties said she noticed a reduction when she temporarily changed her diet slightly, leaving out mostly raw and flavored almonds and corn on the cob, as well as corn flakes, cornmeal and tofu for a few weeks. She said she noticed that now when she gets a stall it isn’t that often anymore and it clears up quicker. She thinks it’s because she followed the pharmacist’s advice and temporarily changed her diet.

Diet changes may not stop you from getting a hutch, but clean hands will help, and once you get one, diet changes can clear him up faster, especially if you also use hot compresses for several days. And remember to wash your hands often with soap and hot water. If you use q-tips and washcloths to clean your eyes every morning, or eye drops or mascara, try not to cause contamination. And also try not to touch your eyes.
