In brief: 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.
