kuliti


last week, medyo nakaramdam ako ng pangangati ng mata. and im so worried then kasi baka ako magka sore eyes. hindi pwede! hinding hindi dapat ako magkasore eyes kasi alam kong mahahawaan ko ang aking mga kasama sa bahay lalong lalo na ang aking baby. masyadong mahirap. kung ako lang kaya ko pang tiisin, anyway nagkasore eyes na ako when im still a kid kaya lang ayoko kasing makitang nahihirapan ang aking unica hija.


and last wednesday, aba masakit na ang aking mata at ayon may kuliti ako sa aking kanang mata! hay, mahirap pero mas mabuti na rin lang kasya sore eyes.


since then, naging tampulan tuloy ako ng biro sa office at pati na rin sa compound namin.


may mga nagsasabing kaya daw ako nagkakuliti dahil ako daw ay nanilip, meron din naman nagsabi na baka daw ako ay kumakanta sa banyo at meron din namang nagsabi na baka daw may nabunot akong pilik-mata.


napaisip tuloy ako! ano nga ba ang ibig sabihin ng kuliti at ano nga ba ang causes nito?


at syempre sa google ako magcoconsult. at ito ang aking konti naresearch about kuliti or sty.


according to mirriam-webster dictionary:

*****sty means an inflamed swelling of a sebaceous gland at the margin of an eyelid


and according to MotherNature.com:


A sty is a lot like a pimple. It's swollen, red and sometimes painful, and it gives you that same sinking feeling when you look in the mirror. The only thing that distinguishes it, really, is its particularly sensitive location. Sties are the result of an infected oil gland at the base of the eyelash. You can get more than one sty at a time or several in succession because the infection can spread from one hair follicle to others. Infection can occur, for example, when a contaminated mascara or makeup brush gives bacteria a free ride into the oily pores along the lashes. People who have super-oily skin or scalp may be sty-prone, just as they may be acne-prone, according to Kenneth Kauvar, M.D., assistant clinical professor of ophthalmology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver and author of Eyes Only.

Like pimples, sties are usually harmless and disappear on their own, says Dr. Kauvar.


Here's how you can help clear them up.


1. Drain, don't squeeze.

2. Take it to the doctor.

3. Keep a clean upper lid.

4. Take a break from eye makeup.

5. Ditch that dandruff.

i never had kuliti before, nor sore eyes. buti na lang, because i don't have a tolerance kung mata ko na ang apektado. :)

hope you are well soon!
