    For a stye at the outside edge of the eyelid, you should never “pop” it. Most of the outside sties will rupture on its own. You can speed up its self-healing process by applying a hot compress to the eyelid several times each day. This method can ease certain symptoms such as eye pain. In rare cases, styes require special treatment from a doctor, who will open and drain them. Antibiotic ointments may be prescribed to control a recurrent stye.

    A warm compress is a good way to treat your stye. You can wet a cloth with hot water. Then place the warm compress on the affected eye for 5 to 10 minutes. You can do this for several times a day, then the style will release some pus. Your symptoms will disappear very quickly.
