Urgent need to get rid of a stye on my eyelid overnight?

No shortcut

Hordeolum
sorry, no shortcuts. hot compresses are the best way to encourage a stye to drain spontaneously, and you can certainly do them several times daily, but short of having a physician incise and drain the stye, there isn't a quick fix (and trying to manipulate or pop it at home is likely to make it more inflamed, and possibly lead to infection).

Wat causes stye under the upper eyelid n wat is the treatment?

Warm compress

Open-uri20130418-6794-m0b4ko
A sty is a moderately inflamed "sweat duct" in the eyelid. The ducts get blocked. I tell my patients to get a damp wash cloth and pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Test it on your wrist to make sure it's not too hot. Place warm compress the closed eyelid for about5-10 minutes And re-heating as necessary. If it does not get better in a week or gets worse go to your eye doctor.

Dr. Colin McCannel answered:

After my stye went away I still had a bump, googled it & found out it is a chalazion but now my eyelid is way darker than the other. Why? Treatment?

Skin pigmentation

Chalazion
changes can be part of healing. A stye and a chalazion are inflammatory lesions. This can cause the pigment cells in the skin to increase pigment, resulting in increased pigmentation of the skin. For instance, it is common for folks with mild to moderate pigmentation (asians, hispanics, middle eastern heritage etc.) to have increased pigmentation at healed sites of skin injury.

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

Topical heat

Eyes
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.

What is the best way to get rid of a stye on the eyelid?

Warm soaks

An acute stye is best first treated by applying a very warm, not hot, washcloth to the closed lids for 4 minutes at a time and five times per day. This will get rid of most. Things like "stye" ointment obtained over the counter do not work.Check with your ophthalmologist if persistent.

How to get rid of a stye on my eyelid when ever i blink it hurt will i loose my sight if it dont go away in within a week

A

A stye is a red, tender bump that can develop a yellow spot in the middle, on the eyelid or right where the eyelash meets the skin. It is caused by an infection in the oil glands of the eyelid. Warm compresses allows blood vessels to dilate and clean the area. The following is a method that some of the ophthalmologists on AVVO.com have recommended. 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. If you have visual changes you need to see an opthamologist. By, the way, I can't tell why you have "eye lift" tagged. Normally a stye would not cause blindness.

How does a doctor get rid of a stye i have one on my upper eyelid close to the eyelash i feel like it getting bigger? Why dosomedoctors not remove it

Styes / Chalazion

Hordeolum
Styes are from blocked or infected oil glands that open at the edges of the eyelids. Using warm compresses to the eyelids 5-10 minutes once or twice a day followed by cleaning of the lids can help styes to resolve. Using an ophthalmic antibiotic / anti-inflammatory ointment can also help. In some cases the doctor has to drain the sty under local anesthetic, but most resolve using heat.
