How do you get rid of sty's?

Omg!!! The steam works! Boiling water in a mug, place eye over mug, resting head on rim. Stings a little but within seconds it brings the sty to a white head which u can then squeeze/push the pus out.

I've got styes coincidence of not just after my baby was born.
Maybe it was to much stress with the pregnancy and me working long hours as a medical assistant.
The baby is now 6 months and I work at home for a medical organization Edit [Moderator]: Link removed and the stayes are gone!
My conclusion is that it was the stress Smile

I unfortunately get sty's about once a year. Especially when I am tired and run down. What ALWAYS works for me is hot water and baby shampoo (ie: Johnson and Johnsons)
Take a folded clean wash cloth and soak it with the hottest water you can stand then hold it gently against your eye. Repeat 4-5 times in a row. Once you have done that use a q-tip to gently clean along your eyelashes with a the baby shampoo (I usually mix a couple drops into a little bit of water)
Rinse with warm water, repeat the hot compress again. And do the whole treatment 2 or 3 times a day!
I've never had a sty last more than three days, even after waking up with one so bad I could only open my eye a slit! Hope this helps! And btw Advil is better than Tylenol for pain as it reduces swelling.
ps: dont use the same wash cloth, get a clean one each time!

I have a stye it is driving me crazy it has affected my day and my other eye I don't know what to do anymore Sad so I decided to try some of the home remedies to find out what home remedy works best the reason why I'm turning to home remedies is because my doctor gave me a antibiotic eye drops in another doctor gave me antibiotic pills both of them are not working fast enough to take away the pain or the swelling like I said it has now affected the other eye and I look like both my lights been punched out lol and I have to wear sunglasses when I go to the store even at night or anywhere else for that matter because I don't want people to take my husband is beating on me lol so if there's anyone else out there that have more home remedies please bring it on I need as much as I can get thank you sincerely miss don't know what to do Sad
