In brief: Warm compresses
Warm compresses (wash cloth with hot water and hold it on the stye for 5-10 minutes, reheating as needed), or surgical incision and drainage, or steroid have been the only effective treatments demonstrated get rid of a stye.
A hordeolum is due to the orifice of an oil gland (mebomian gland) in the eyelid margin becoming inflamed and the gland clogged.
