A stye is a reddish, painful lump on the outer or inner side of the eye lid. It is caused by bacteria infection of the oil glads in the eyelid. A stye does not affect the functions of the eye. In most cases, it heals on it's own but you can treat it at home with some simple techniques.
1. Tea bags
You can use teabags after making your tea to compress the stye for about 10 minutes. If you are not making tea, soak the tea bag in warm water. The antibacterial properties in the tea will fight germs in the stye making it to heal.
2. Warm compress
If you have no tea bags, do not worry. Soak a clean cloth in warm water and use it to compress the stye. Doing this severally will clear the stye.
3. Cucumber or potato
Slice a clean cucumber or potato and rub it on the affected area. If possible, use a cucumber that has been refrigerated. The cold compress reduces inflammation and any irritation in the eye.
4. Skip makeup
Skip a makeup to give the stye time to heal. While treating stye, don't forget to wash your hands to avoid transferring more bacteria to the affected eye. Do not also share your wash clothes with anyone since sties are contagious.
