Why do pregnant women have eye stye?
In medicine, the term «stye» means acute inflammation of the ciliary follicles, followed by accumulation of pus. The factors that provoke stye are the same, that pregnant woman and not pregnant has. The main cause of the abscess is pathogenic microorganisms that enter the visual organ, thus causing inflammation and accumulation of pus. The most common source of infection is Staphylococcus aureus, which entered into the eye when the rules of personal hygiene are not followed.
The following factors and conditions may also be the causes of eye pathology:
- vitamin deficiency or hypovitaminosis;
- stressful situations;
- tiredness, exhaustion;
- impaired metabolism;
- poor-quality cosmetics;
- external factors (dust, wind, foreign particles);
- eye diseases: conjunctivitis, blepharitis;
- ciliary mite.
All of the above conditions and factors have negative effect on the functionality of the already weakened immune system of a pregnant woman, so that a future mother may face with a disease such as stye.
