How To: Get rid of a painful sty on your eyelid

Get rid of a painful sty on your eyelid

In this video Debbie Witter gives tips on how to get rid of a stye. A stye is a painful little pimple on your eyelid that comes from a bacteria called staphylococcal, which is found in the nose. Children get styes often because they pick their noses and then rub their eyes. Frequent hand washing is the best way to keep from getting a stye. Other possible causes are a clogged pore or ingrown hair.

To treat a stye you can try an antibiotic cream like Neosporin, or a warm compress applied to the eye. If it doesn’t go away within seven days you should see a doctor.

Debbie suggests a very old home remedy that has worked every time she has used it. Take a piece of gold such as a ring, wet it with water, and rub it on the stye several times a day. The gold seems to create an energy that makes the stye go away. However, if the stye is very large and hard it is best to see a doctor.
