I have a sty that acts up every now and again. Its a flamed tear duct. I use a cold wash rag or ice pack. I dont know how well that would work, because my baby would not let me put a icepack on his eye..lol.. I also use eye drops. Maybe you should speak with her doctor they might be able to help you. Otherwise I would use eye drops... I hope that helps.

I'm PRO CHOICE,SAHM, NO CIO, Bottle using, vaxing, public school, non-spanking, circumcising, front facing carseat, junk food eating, debt free, gun using, NOT VOTING, Smoking SORTA MOM..I don't support the war..Its just who I am.. Get over it...

I heard that alternating a cold and warm compress (wet rag)  on the sty would bring it down. that should help until you can get drops.

Make a cup of hot tea.  Let the tea bag cool off a bit (so it is just warm)  Put it on his eye for a few minutes.  It will be gone the next day.

My son gets them every once in a while. Use the tea bag (its more pleasent than a cold rag on the face) and also pay attention to the eye and if there is ever a discharge use eye drops and flush it out a few times. DO NOT TRY AND SQUEEZ OR PUSH on it. You could make it worse or make it last longer.

I know there is this ointment called STY but I don't know if it would be suitable for a baby.  I know it works and its gone in like a day but I would ask Ped before using it.

     My 9 yr. old daughter just had a sty and I have to say,it was the WORST sty that I have ever seen.Her I was swollen and extremely red and painful.Of course anyone that has ever had a sty know's they don't feel good.Anytime I've ever had one it's been more aggrevating than anything.Anyway,the nurse told us to KEEP a WARM rag on the eye,so we did and the next day it was already getting better.So try a warm rag and as soon as it start's to cool off,re-warm it.

                                                                           good

i would personaly see what your doc says before doing anyhting, but usually a warm rag. i would talk to the ped. and see what they would say to do, an infant is different with a sty, they might not be able to sit long enough to keep a warm rag on, or it might just bother them, they might have something diff. for you to try.

Hi meryclaire

I would call the doc and see what they say. I don't know how you would handle a sty with a baby. Sorry!

Merry Christmas

That is what I do when I get them---so far it is the only thing that works for me!!!!
