  • Get a wash rag and put really hot water on it or put it in the microwave for a few seconds. Then put the hot rag on your eye. (don't burn yourself though) It should help soothe it.

  • Brew some black tea and after it steeps for several minutes take it out and lightly ring it out. It should still be a little wet. Then put it on your eye. It needs to still be hot, as hot as you can stand. Hold it in place 5 minutes. You can repeat every 2 hours.

  • If you are breastfeeding, or know someone who is, put a couple of drops of breastmilk in your eye.
