DO’Sdo

  • Use mild soap and water to clean the affected eyelid.
  • Place a warm washcloth over the affected eye. Make sure to wring out the washcloth and apply to a closed eye. Once the washcloth starts to lose heat, re-wet and repeat the process for up to 5 to 10 minutes and then gently massage the area. This should be repeated two to three times daily.

DON’TSdont

  • You should never wear contact lenses with a stye because they can be contaminated with the bacteria, so if you do wear contacts refrain from wearing them until the stye is healed.

  • Don't try to squeeze the pus from or pop the stye. This can worsen the infection and cause the condition to spread.
