try warm water sa cotton, not to hot ha,  or saline solution let it stay for awhile and wag putukin  and look for an eye ointment or something like neospirin na antibiotic thats safe for the eye. it takes a few days para mahinog ang stye. the warm water should help.

I am a catch, and I am not going to be the one to get away.

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.  ;D hehe
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.

This is a weird suggestion, pinapatanggal ko yan thru minor surgery at one point. Pero she pulled out lang the hair sa stye one time and natanggal naman.

sweeteascape, you really should discuss that with your ophthalmologist.  I use blephagel before kasi may eyelids are oily.

Always, always, always consult with your ophthalmologist. Stye or medically known as hordeolum may be subdivided into internal or external. Iba din ang chalazion. Tama some sisses when they recommended warm compress over the area. Antibiotics for soft tissue infections are usually advised like Cloxacillin and Co-Amoxiclav. But never, ever self-medicate. Your ophtha will tell you what antibiotic is indicated if and when deemed necessary. Tama din yung ibang sis na nag-suggest ng surgery. May mga pagkakataon din na yun ang treatment of choice. So it's really a case to case basis.

No other substitute to treatment than a thorough examination by an ophthalmologist. Iba kasi yung dinedescribe lang the lesion sa mismong nakikita talaga ng doctor yung lesion.

Always consult with your ophthalmologist ;)
