I have what I think is a stye, no lump under my eyelid but in between layers of d eyelid. My eyelid is swollen and puffy now. What can I do?

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.
