    I am dealing with the same issue!  And ironicaly mine started on Day 5 as well.  I'm now on Day 13 and it's become a major infection requiring antibiotics  I wondered the exact same thing, if it was detox related.  I haven't had a stye in years, and suddenly in the midst of cleaning up my diet, one not only pops up, but is a mega stye.  I had to go to the eye doctor yesterday and get on medicine to get rid of it!

    When you get so excited because you finally found the glass jar with the lid wide enough for the immersion blender to fit through for homemade mayo!

    We as moderators see a lot of confusion around here on what constitutes a serving of eggs when eggs are your primary protein source. We tell you as many as you can hold in your hand without dropping but I still don't think people actually try this. So I thought I'd post a visual for you folks. It would be fun if other people added their own pictures too. Try the experiment.
     
    Context - I'm 5'4" female and these are large eggs.

    Whatever caused the sty, it was not eating saturated fat.

    It is actually possible that it has something to do with the detox you are experiencing. The toxins in your system exit not just through your digestive system, but through your external covering: skin, sweat glands, etc. Some people get localized rashes or skin irritation or outbreaks of eczema during their Whole30. It's possible exiting toxins may have clogged or irritated the oil glands on your eyelids, causing or exacerbating an infection.
