9 Ways To Treat
A Sty In The Eye
Apply a warm compress to the affected eye for 10-15 minutes, several times a day to reduce the inflammation.
Gently clean the affected eyelid with a mild soap and warm water to help remove any debris or bacteria that may be causing the infection.
Apply an over-the-counter antibiotic ointment to the affected eyelid to help fight the infection.
Use over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, to help reduce the pain and discomfort associated with the sty.
Avoid wearing makeup and contact lenses until the sty has healed to prevent further irritation and infection.
Gently massage the affected eyelid to help promote drainage of the sty.
Apply a warm, moist tea bag to the affected eye for 10-15 minutes several times a day.
Avoid touching the affected eye and keep the area clean and dry to prevent further irritation and infection.
If the sty is severe, lasts longer than a week, or is affecting your vision, see a doctor for medical treatment.
