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.

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

What is a good home remedy for a sty on your eye?

Warm compresses: A stye is basically an inflamed oil gland on your eyelid -- and many go away by themselves. You can put warm compresses over the affected area 3-4 times/day for 10 to 15 minutes to help drain the stye, and to remove the infection from the oil gland. If you've been using eye makeup, throw it away since it can re-expose you to infection. If no improvement in a few days, see your eye doctor. ...Read more
