How to pop an eye stye?

No - don't pop

Skin
anything! Microwave a clean potato with the skin on for four minutes. Wet a wash cloth or small towel with warm or hot water. Squeeze out the excess water and wrap it around the potato. Apply this to the eye lid until it cools down (about 15minutes).This can be repeated intermittently. Please see your opthamologist if no improvement.

Is it bad for a stye to pop on the inside of my eye?

No

Head-eye
Use some artificial tear to help rinse out the discharge. Then use comfortably hot compresses on the closed eye to help the style finish draining. The style may well completely resolve with the continued use of te hot compresses.

This is a plugged oil gland in the eye lid. Treatment is hot compresses , wet wash cloth heated in the microwave, for 10 minutes at least 3 or 4 times a day. This requires 4-6 weeks to resolve and is the least invasive treatment. If the. Style is big it can be drained it the office, not on your own..

Dr. Ajay K. Gupta answered:

What is the best way to cure a stye in your eye?

A few options

Stye
Stye is commonly used to describe a chalazion, an inflammed meibomian gland of the eyelid. A chalazion that has recently developed can be treated with warm compresses and possibly oral and/or topical antibiotics. A long-standing chalazion may need an incision and drainage from an ophthalmologist. I recommend an eye exam to determine the best treatment.

Can you wear some mascara with a stye in your eye?

It's risky

Hordeolum
You could but the stye is a sign your mascara reservoir could be harboring infectious bacteria. I would suggest you use hot packs consisting of a warm wash cloth or put a small potato in the microwave for one minute and then place that inside a wet wash cloth and put this on the stye for 10 minutes per day until the stye disappears. Alternatively, see an ophthalmogist for a prescription drop.

Dr. Michael L. Ham answered:

Can I tell me how I can get rid of a stye in your eye?

Compresses!

Stye
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.
