  • My Dr told me to put a wet wash cloth over it and let it sit there. He also gave me an eye treat ment cream. It worked in about 3 or 4 days.

  • I get them sometimes. I always heat some water and then soak a teabag in the water for 4 minutes. (has to be black tea) Take the tea bag out and let it cool just slightly, until I can hold it to my eyelid without it burning. It needs to be as hot as you can stand it. Hold it there until it cools completely, around 10 minutes.
    Do that 3-4 times a day. You can also alternate using a cool wet washcloth in between the tea bag.

    Another thing that is very important. Do not touch it unless you are putting the compress on, and no makeup until it clears. And make sure to wash your hands after touching it.

    It should clear up in 2-3 days.

    Have fun at your baby shower.
