  • Gosh, I remember having one of those when I was a kid. I remember my mom keeping a really warm washcloth on my eye.

  • Yup, apply a warm washcloth to the eye several times a day. Your little one works? lol

  • lol. How could you make a little baby work? HAhahaha
    You can try to steep a cup of black tea, ring out most of the water and place it on the eye lid while it is still warm.
    I have had sties all my life and the only thing that really works is time. Give it a couple of days and it should go away on it's own.

  • Okay this sounds Funny... But first A Clean Wash cloth to cleanse it & soften it. Take A Clean Gold Smooth ring & slice it right off! No idea why but A Real Gold Piece of Clean Jewlery works! I heard this Trick Years ago on the Old Hour Magazine TV Show,Health tips Section!! I did do it & it worked & didn't hurt at all ! Nothing went wrong ever.. Of course Try at your own Risk! Its A trick I use on me!! I have no medical or Dental Healthcare! Or can I afford my Meds. DH & I are both unemployed! But I care to Help.. Hope you find your Right Answer!!
