This is an old wives tale, but I swear it works.  My husband had a really bad stye, and this method helped it go away.  Not overnight, but there was a significant difference w/in a couple of hours.

Take a dropper and fill it with Whole White Milk.  Put a couple of drops in your eye.  I think he had to do this a couple of times a day.  A stye is like a pimple in the eye, and the milk protein helps to make it "pop" and helps the gunk come out which makes the swelling go down.

someone on here told me to use a tea bag (after it's been in hot water) and kinda squeeze it a little to get some of it in your eye. I did this and it cleared up my eye in a few hours. I'm pretty sure chaoticX(i don't know the rest)  told me that she posted a pic of her son the day she did it and his eye was drastically better the next day.

Our family is little and broken, but still good.

ooo i just had one of those. they hurt!!!  if you have mexdican shops there in your area, get this ointment called terremecina.  make sure it is for the eyes tho.  this works wonders on styes and also pink eye.  trust me, this will work overnight!

Boil coriander seeds in water... strain the seeds out, KEEPING the water.  Let it cool all the way.... then flush your eye with the water 3 times a day.


My grandma taught me that. It got rid of mine right before my senior pics! :)

It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.
