    Default Eye Stye Remedy

    OK so I got this stye on my eye, I have stye cream and drops and have been putting heat compresses on it but this dang thing won't pop or go away. Three days now. Any remedies?

    The good news is it will go away on it's on. The bad news is it takes a week to 10 days. Warm compresses are about the best home remedy. If it hasn't started to heal within a week I'd see your doc.

    You never listen Beo. They said you'd go blind if you kept doing that.

    Slice a raw potato and put on it. Seriously, I just had a client with one and her ophthalmologist told her this trick.

    Is that the one about picking your nose before rubbing your eyes?

    Seriously, I had one once. Used a tea of turmeric and put it in an eye dropper. Took a few drops three times a day (if I remember correctly) Only took about four days to clear up.

    Sorry to hear that Batch. That crap was NO fun.
