Hi po sis. Just want to share my experience and what I've done to treat my stye. 3rd day, nawala na po yung sa akin, yung classmates ko, naabot yung kanila 2-4 weeks.
When I first noticed it, I got soooooooooo self conscious, super, coz maraming nagsasabi sa akin na yung mga may stye, naninilip po or kinagat ng cockroach!
hay naku. (none are true btw)
Basically, na clog po yung follicle mo, at may infection. dapat ma.open mo yung clogged follicle mo. One of the best ways to do this is to put warm compresses. But nako, talagang hirap at I got sooo lazy after 4 tries. What I did was pour hot water into a kabo, or any container, then dip a towel into it. Then tested it at the back of my hand if the heat was tolerable enough. I had it on for 20 minutes, flipping it if it doesnt feel warm anymore. I persisted because I could still see it. I think I repeated for 4 times.
Next day, may swelling pa, but no visible redness. Parang, medyo2, as in liit lang po, naging medyo chinita yung eye ko. Hindi cya visible unless talagang nagstare ka sa akin in close distance. That day was SUNNY and DUSTY too.
PLEASE DO NOT LOOK AT ANY FORM OF BRIGHT OBJECTS. I don't know why, but it made my squint, and for some reason, probably irritated it, secondary to the wind blowing and we were on open ground. It was painful and itchy then (tolerated that open/outdoor activity for a half-day) and turned pinkish. DO NOT SCRATCH IT NO MATTER WHAT.
I grew impatient and put Terramycin ointment on it. The one they use for eye prophylaxis on newborn babies, and I put it 2x a day, in morning and at night. Before the nighttime terramycin, I did the warm compress thing.
3rd day, it was verrrryy minimal swelling, parang slightly puffy, tiny little bump on my eyelid. Continued with the hot compresses, and antibiotic til the 5th day. But practically on the 3rd day, it was very negligible.
Hope I helped sis.
