How do you take care of a stye in your eye?

Soak a clean washcloth in very warm water and put it over the stye (wash your hands first). Do this for 5 to 10 minutes several times a day. Gently massage the area while the washcloth is over your eye. Clean your eyelid with a cotton swab soaked in watered-down baby ("no tears") shampoo every day or two.
