Ways to get rid of a sty
Hey all, I'm new here. THis is my first reply. I have a sty right now or atleast a swollen eye or something. My grandma always told me that if I had a sty that I should put hot tea bags on it (but not too hot otherewise you burn yourself and have scab there.) It works though cause the sty gets smaller, but it is something that doesn't get rid of it all at once, you need to do this everyday untill the sty is gone. It just shrinks the sty smaller and sooths it.
Also, another person said you just need hot water, but I don't know about that one, I think herbs in the tea might do something that just hot water can't but I could be wrong. Also, this idea just came into my head....A sty makes your eye swollen pretty much, right? Well, I wonder if putting ice on it would bring down the swelling? I hope this info helps.
