Stye Home Remedy #2: Warm Compress

Gentle heat can help provide relief from styes. Make a warm compress by soaking a clean towel or piece of cloth with warm water. Wring out excess water and place the towel on the affected eye, making sure that the towel is warm, not hot. Leave it over the shut eye for about 10 minutes. Remove the towel and soak it again with warm water to repeat the treatment.

The heat from the warm towel will stimulate the eye gland to drain, relieving the swelling, itchiness and pain. You can repeat this treatment twice or thrice per session and several times in the day.
