  • This is going to sound really weird but...A couple of drops of whole white milk (red cap) in the eye a couple of times a day will actually help the stye go away and help with the pain. Something about the proteins in the milk. My hubby had a really bad one and my mom told him to try it, and it really worked.

  • ew my husband gets those and the only home remedy that's ever worked for him is put your finger in your mouth get a bunch of saliva on it and then put it on the infected eye. Keep doing that it will heal it.

  • I would do a warm compress and if it don't go down in a few days I would go to the doctor. You might need to get an antibioic eye ointment. I'm using that right now for my son. He had one on his eye and I did the warm compress for about a day. When he woke up the next morning his eye lid was red and purple and swollen like he got hit in his eye. I took him to the doctor and that's what they gave him. He worked. His Sty has gone down.
