The line of treatment of the disease Anjananamika (stye) includes Swedana (hot compress), Nishpidana (pressure applying to drain out pus), Bhedana (incision), Pratisarana (rubbing of medicaments over the lids), Anjana (collyrium). The objective of the present study is to evaluate the effect of Bidalaka and Aschyotana along with internal medicines. A 19-year female patient approached the Shalakya tantra OPD of Sri Paripoorna Sanathana Ayurveda Medical College, Hospital and Research centre, Nelamangala, Bangalore with the complaints of swelling in the left eye lid since 3 days with mild pain and redness of the eyes. On examination, the whole edge of the left eye lid was oedematous along with the presence of an abscess in outer canthus. On these signs and symptoms, the patient was diagnosed as a case of stye and advised Kriyakalpa based on the Roga and Rogibala along with internal medicines which have given promising results with the complete absence of the symptoms within 10 days.
