Symptoms, conditions and causes

What causes styes, boils and abscesses in eyes?

Boils, abscesses and eye styes are bacterial infections that cause pus to collect under the surface of your skin. Your immune system usually eliminates the bad bacteria using a type of white blood cell called a neutrophil. However, if you consume too much sugar, the neutrophil often targets the sugar molecules instead of the bacteria, allowing an infection to develop.
