Caught by specialist, yeast infection (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stye

Here is my best explanation:

'infection' is the definition.

(stye is a kind of infection)

'caught by specialist yeast' is the subsidiary indication.

'caught by' indicates a hidden word.

'stye' is hidden within 'specialist yeast'.

This clue was last seen in The Guardian

(Other definitions for stye that I've seen before include "Ocular inflammation", "An inflammation", "Eye infection", "Red eye", "Eyesore?", "Sore", "Inflammation around the eye", "swelling by organ", "Pen" and "Complaint".)
