@InTraNsiTiOn,
Keep it simple: good hand washing, keep your hands away from your face, warm hot moist compress to area as many times as possible until gone.

To get rid of a sty, the first thing you need to do is sell off the hogs . . .

@Glass Tyrant,
it will go away on it own if u let it it would take about a week i think a hot compress helps with some irration and helps wit the pain. i would not advise picking at it cuase that hirts i did it and also would not pop it cuase that would hurt and u can spread the infection to ur other eye. i heard something about a tea bag would help to put it on there when it is warm.. i have one now and it annoying i know but upbright side is it will go away

@Glass Tyrant,
I just got one for the first time and read from another site to get a cup about half full with hot water then to place your eye over the cup as close as you can. As the steam rises and comes in contact with your eye it will soothe and reduce the swelling. I just did it a few minutes ago and feel much better. I haven't noticed any reduction regarding the swelling yet though.

@InTraNsiTiOn,
Put a washcloth in hot water and put it on the sty (stye?). Make sure that the washcloth is hot enough, but don't burn your face. If there's a whitehead on the sty you can also get two q-tips and push on the sides of the sty. It's good if you do that and pus (eew) comes out.

@InTraNsiTiOn,
Tobradex drops. But you still need to go to the doctor and have it checked.
Because it looks all same, but the medication is still depends on ho w bad the infection is. If it's not that bad, doctor will prescribe you an eye drops or an ointment (tobradex) or whatever brand it is. And then the doctor will give you at least a week if the ointment/drops worked or didn't work. In some cases, doctor will prescibe you an antibiotic. Once you get a sty, it will keeps coming back. Unless you will have it scraped, so you can get rid of all the abscess.. Drops,ointments & antibiotics,, those might work to get rid of the sty but it cannot really get rid of all the bacterias (abscess) that's why it keeps coming back. So i suggests, 1st is your gonna need to take a vitaminC not only when you have a sty, you need it everyday. And the 2nd thing, make sure before you're gonna scratch your eyes, make sure that you wash your hands first so your eyes won't infect. 3rd make sure you always wash your face before you go to bed, when you wake up in the morning, and you have your make-up on. Those make-ups like, (mascara, foundation,face powder, eyeshadow, contact lenses even the brushes) can also cause of an infections. And the last thing is, go to the doctor and have it scraped. Smile

@InTraNsiTiOn,
I have been getting these darn things all my life and yes they are a pain! I have always used my Mother's wedding band(make sure it's clean and real gold 10k will do but higher is better)and rubbed it all around my eye lid. This worked every time! I have in the last few years used wet tea bags and it too works pretty well. I got a stye yesterday but was traveling, and nothing now seems to be doing anything for it. I guess the key is to catch it within the first hour of it hurting after that...well I'm still open to trying anything!

@brandibabes,
Just wanted to update...

**UPDATE**
I have ALWAYS used a gold ring but didn't have one. After trying everything I could find online I borrowed a friends. I couldn't believe that after rubbing the clean 14K gold ring all over my eye lid for a few min 3 times over the period of a day it was gone. I've always been able to catch them but this time it got away on me and was HUGE. So thankful its gone! Hope this works for for someone else too!
