In brief: Stye in eye

Use warm compresses twice a day for 5 minutes at a time.
If not better in a week, call your local ophthalmologist for a topical antibiotic.

In brief: Warm compresses

A sty, is a sealed off secretion gland of the eye.
Warm compresses are usually all that is needed to get the sty to pop and drain and thus go away. Use the compresses as often as you can but at least 3-4 times per day. Your doc may also give you eye drops.
