  • Warm compresses and time. The dr recently told me to keep them on for 1/2 hour, off for 1/2 hour then on again. If it doesn't get better or go away, see a dr.

  • My husband gets a lot of them. He does warm compress as stated already and they eventually go away.

  • i use to get them alot, but now I haven't in years. The problem is that it will go away on it's own but sometimes it could be an infection and needs to get drops at the doctor.
