  • warm compress with Epsom salt. also you can use eye drops that take the red out. there is also a drop called Sty exactly this.

  • wet, warm salt water compresses will help bring the stye to a head do them 15 every couple hours if you can. Make sure and wash your hands thoroughly and the washcloth you use should be kept separate. Before adding it to your wash get it wet and microwave at least one minute. If not boil for 5 in a pot. Styes are most often caused by staff and can be very contagious.
