How can I get rid of sties in the eye?

I frequently get sties in my eyes.


Answer by  HawaiianGirl (6906)

The most important thing is prevention. If you get them often, it could be because you touch your eyes when your hands are not clean. Try your best to keep your hands away from your eye area. As far as the sties that you currently have, apply a warm compress such as a washcloth to the area.

You may need a prescription medication perscribed from an eye doctor. Another thing you can do is to apply a warm compress such as a washcloth to the eye area which may help to alleviate the symptoms. To prevent the sties, keep your hands away from your eyes, don't touch the eye area, this prevents germs from entering.

Put a wash cloth with warm water on your eye and relax. Sties can be caused by a lack of sleep and stress. This will make it feel better.

The best cure for a sty is a home remedy. Take a Q-Tip and dip the end into hot water. Apply the Q-Tip directly to the sty.
