  • I used to get them ALL the time...hot compresses on the eye (like a hot wash cloth) help the most...there is OTC meds you can buy at the store that help with the itching. Good luck.

  • Nope. My cousin's son does though, and she'd put a warm compress on his eye.

  • Washcloth soaked in HOT water, but not HOT enough to burn the skin. Helps bring the "pimple" to a "head" and burst.
