I have a stye hordeolum in eye, what is best treatment.?

Hot packs: A hordeoulum, or stye, is an inflammation of the glands of zeiss or moll. Hot compresses are a good first aid treatment (microwave a potato for the heat ). If this does not resolve it, see your eye md (ophthalmologist) for her/him to make the correct diagnosis and then have her/him consider treatment with a short course of ophthalmic antibiotic ointment or ophthalmic steroid-antibiotic ointment. ...Read more

My 2 year old son has a stye on his upper eye lid. Is there an easy-to-use treatment?

Topical heat: Take a wash cloth, and run it under the warm water tap. Apply it to your eye (if you cannot stand it, wait until it cools a little). Then put it on your son's eye for 3 minutes and do this 5 times per day. This will usually cause the stye to melt away or open and discharge. If still present more than 3-4 days, or worsening, see your pediatric ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Warm : Warm commpresses and lid massage can help, but the use of a tetracycline antibiotic can sometimes help as well--talk to your ophthamologist about this. If you do need to have it excised, your doctor will completely numb it first and it is usually done from the inner side of the lid--you should not feel a thing and there will be no visible scar. ...Read more

I've got eye stye. My doctor told me that i can use neosporin for a treatment. Which neosporin is she talking about?

Use heat: Neosporin will have little or no effect. The best first treatment is to apply very warm soaks five to six times per day for 5 minutes each application. This should get rid of it in 2-4 days, if it persists longer than that, see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Often, : Often, a series of hot compresses during the day will work, with shorter duration for each compress. Many of my patients have success with 3 or 4 compresses, 5-10 minutes each session. The potato works well, some patients have mentioned that they have used a hard-boiled egg the same way. This holds heat longer than using a washcloth alone. If this does not work within a week or so, then eye drops, or surgical removal will be successful. See your eye doctor if compresses fail! ...Read more
