I have a horrible, hurting stye in my eye. How do I get rid of it? Thank you. Thats it. I've had it for 3 days now, and am just putting hot compresses on my eye. I feel like putting hydrogen peroxide in my eye! can I do that safely? It sure worked well
DO : Do not put peroxide in your eye! 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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Compresses!: You can use warm compresses - a washcloth with warm water and hold it to the closed eye for 5-10 minutes 3 times a day. You can massage it with your fingers after the compress, but do not aggravate it. You are trying to get it to drain on its own. You may need it incised and drained if this does not work. See and ophthalmologist. A sty is not and infection, so antibiotics do not help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Liquify solid lipids: A stye is basicaly a small abcess on the margin fo the eyelid. It becomes painful as the orifice to the glands that line the eyelid (meibomian glands) become plugged with infectious material and bacteria, usually staph. The hot compress helps to liquify the solid waste products so that it can drain. This and the use of antibiotics help to clear the infection. Topical antibiotics;usually eyedrops. ...Read more
Stye on my eye my eyelid is slightly swollen also the white of my eye is red/ irritated is that normal? I've been using hot compresses to help
Common symptoms: You are doing the right thing by using warm compresses. Most tend to apply them too infrequently - apply very warm compresses over the involved eye for 4 minutes at a time 5-6 times a day. This will usually melt it away in several days. As long as the vision is normal, this should work. Using compresses 1-2 times per day will not usually work. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
