@bijouxbroussard first time having one...
I feel so crap.
@Mellowgirl Here are some tips:
[quote] After washing your hands, soak a clean washcloth in very warm (but not hot) water and put it over the stye. Do this for 5 to 10 minutes several times a day.

Gently massage the area with a clean finger to try to get the clogged gland to open and drain.

Keep your face and eyes clean. Get rid of any crust around your eye. Baby shampoo is an inexpensive, gentle cleanser.

Take pain relievers like ibuprofen if the area is sore.

Don’t wear eye makeup while you have a stye.

Wear glasses instead of contact lenses while you have a stye. After it’s healed, clean and disinfect your lenses before putting them in again. Or switch to a new pair.
