Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

What homemade remedy can I use to eliminate a stye inside the eyelid? It gets swollen every time I wake up. Kindly help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. If it is a stye, the best homemade remedy is a warm compress. Mix about two tablespoons of salt in a glass of water and heat it. Now with a clean cloth or cotton, you should warm compress your eyes. Do it seven to eight times daily for 10 to 15 minutes each. You will get relief in a day, and it should completely resolve in two days. Keep cleaning the eyes gently with a soft cloth dipped in warm water every few hours. If resolution does not occur, you must visit an ophthalmologist for incision and drainage. Thank you.
