(A) BLEPHARITIS, CONJUNCTIVITIS & STYE
Tiny red papules appear along the inner edges of the eyelashes (conjunctiva), categorized as acute or chronic, collectively known as trachoma. Mucous membranes connecting to the eyeball cause inflammation and redness of the eyelid. Excessive tearing (lacrym) occurs in the affected eye, leading to conjunctivitis. A tenderful red prominence emerges among the eyelash hairs, either above or below, known as a style.
