In brief: Warm Compresses
Warm compresses applied about 15 minutes on then off, 4 times a day, usually will help most simple stys.
If not helping, see an eye doctor as one might need to have the lesion opened and they are the best doctors to take care of this. Antibiotics are generally only needed when a sty has turned into a more severe infection.
