    The primary mode of treatment for a stye is application of warm compresses. Incision and drainage is performed if resolution does not begin in the next 48 hours after warm compresses are started.

    As a part of self-care at home, patients may cleanse the affected eyelid with tap water or with a mild, nonirritating soap or shampoo (such as baby shampoo) to help clean crusted discharge. Cleansing must be done gently and while the eyes are closed to prevent eye injuries.

    I am sorry to hear that you get eye stye. Very frequently, it is infected by bacteria, most commonly Staphylococcus bacteria, and your eyelids will become red and puffy. And it is really bothering. To deal with this, you can try to apply warm compress or get a mediation treatment. If your eyes still hurt after that, you'd better pay a visit to an eye doctor as soon as possible. I hope you will be better soon.

    Sorry to hear that, because you will suffer a lot from an eye stye. But I will give some ways to treat your eyes, and you will feel better from it soon. I hear people say that an eye stye can be treated by applying warm compresses for about ten minutes at each time, 3 to 4 times a day, you can also try cleaning your eyelid with a clean, warm cloth a couple times a day, and do remember that try not to touch or rub your eye during the day. Any way, if your situation is going worse, you should go to see a doctor right away.
