    First of all,you need to clean the eyelid carefully twice a day. The bacteria depend on skin oils to reproduce, so a gentle scrub with baby shampoo and a cotton swab can control their growth. You can also purchase commercially-prepared lid scrub pads from your pharmacy. Apply warm compresses to the eye ,and massage your eyes with clean hands. One thing is crucial,you cannot break it by your own.

    You can apply some warm compresses over the affected area for ten to fifteen minutes four to six times a day. At home, you can have a clean washcloth soaked in the warm water and then apply the washcloth over the infected area, which helps relieve the symptoms and accelerate rupture. Bear in your mind not to squeeze the bump with your hand, as it will spread and worsen the infection instead. And in this phase, you had better not wear contact lenses and eye makeup. Take it easy, hordeolum is harmless in the majority of cases and usually ruptures on its own within a few days, hence you will feel relieved from symptoms. Wish you better soon.
