A stye is a painful, red pimple-like lump on the edge of the eyelid. Sometimes the eyelash follicle or oil gland of the eyelid is infected. Though red and often quite painful, swelling usually goes away on its own in a week or so.
Despite the potential pain and irritation, styes are usually harmless. You can take measures to ease the pain and reduce the swelling, as well as ways to prevent styes from recurring. Here are some method that you can try to get rid of stye.
➧ Clean the Stye.
Wash your hands thoroughly, then use a cotton ball or clean hands to gently cleanse the Stye with warm water. You can also use a special eyelid scrub or diluted tear-free "baby" shampoo.
➧ Apply a warm compress.
After the compress cools, re-soak it with warm water and repeat for another five to ten minutes.
Apply warm compresses three or four times a day. Be consistent about this treatment until the Stye is gone.
Warm (but not hot) and damp tea bags can also be used effectively as compresses. (Some people recommend chamomile tea bags, which may have soothing properties).
➧ Do not squeeze or try to pop the Stye yourself.
It can be tempting to try to force any pus or debris out of the stye, but resist! Squeezing or attempting to pop a stye can make the situation much worse, spreading or deepening the infection, and may even cause scarring.
➧ Use antibacterial cream.
Buy an over-the-counter antibacterial cream made for treating styes, available at any drug store. If you are unsure about which cream to choose, discuss the available options with the pharmacist. Apply a small dab on the stye, taking care not to get it inside your eye.
These creams may help your Stye heal faster.
The local anesthetic many of these creams contain can also provide temporary relief from the discomfort caused by a Stye. However, should it get in your eye, the anesthetic can also cause significant damage. Apply with extreme caution.
If you do get any cream in your eye, flush it out gently with warm water. Then, contact your doctor.
➧ Try a natural home remedy.
Use a coriander seed wash. Soak coriander seeds in water for an hour, strain the seeds, and use the water as a wash for your eye. The seeds are said to have properties that reduce the swelling of a Stye.
Use a guava leaf compress. This is a common home remedy to reduce pain and swelling caused by Styes. Wet guava leaves in warm water and apply them to your eye for 10 minutes.
➧ Use an over-the-counter painkiller.
Take only the recommended dosage listed on the packaging.
Do not give aspirin to children under 18 years of age. Doing so could give them a fatal condition called Reye's syndrome.
➧ Apply eye makeup properly.
Don't go to sleep wearing makeup. Use eye makeup remover to clean it off, then splash warm water on your face to rinse off the remover before going to bed.
Similar to contact lenses, makeup pencils, brushes, and the like make frequent contact with your eyes. If they harbor harmful bacteria, it is very easy for these harmful agents to cause Styes.
Do not share your eye makeup box with other people.
