  • Hardboil an egg, wrap in a wash cloth and massage your eye. A stye is a pimple on the eye lid and needs to pop. There is nothing else to do unless you want the doc to lance it and that is not necessary. I get stye's a lot and my eye doc/uncle told me about the egg thing. An egg holds in the heat longer than anything else. Keep the egg in a plastic bag with the washcloth when not using it. THen throw it out when you are done with it. Just microwave the egg when you need it hot again. I did this 3-4 times a day and the stye was gone in about 2 days.

  • I have used STYE (a small tube of eye lubricant ointment). I also used it on our 10 yr. old with succes.
    Hope you feel better :(

  • The egg one will work..I'm a CMA and I remember in class my teacher said the heat is best..she said to use like a slice potato and heat it up for a few seconds in the microwave.
