In brief: Warm compresses

Warm compresses, or surgical incision and drainage, or steroid have been the only effective treatments demonstrated get rid of a stye.
A stye is due to the orifice of an oil gland (mebomian gland) in the eyelid margin becoming inflamed, and not an infection.

In brief: Stye

Try warm compresses frequently and artificial tears as needed.
If no improvement or persistence, see an eye doctor.
