In brief: Hot compresses
The main treatments for hordeola are hot compresses, lid hygiene and sometimes antibiotic/anti-inflmmatory drops or ointments.
The hot compresses are usually the most important factor in resolving the hordeolum quickly.

In brief: Warm compresses
Treat with warm compresses.
A hordeoulm is the acute clogging of an oil gland in the eyelid margin (mebomian gland), it is not an infection. It is usually red, sore, and swollen. A chalazion is the chronic form of a hordeoulm, but the tissue becomes granulated, and is not red, painful, and inflamed, but there is still a nodule or bump.
