How do you treat a stye inside your eyelid?
- What is a stye?
- Use a warm compress.
- Clean your eyelid with mild soap and water.
- Use a warm tea bag.
- Take over-the-counter painkillers.
- Avoid using makeup and wearing contact lenses.
- Use antibiotic ointments.
- Massage the area to promote drainage.
Styes will usually heal on their own over the course of a few days to a couple weeks. The best way to treat a stye is to apply warm compresses (a washcloth soaked in warm water) to the affected eyelid for 10-15 minutes three times a day. This will help the pus trapped in the stye to come to the surface of the skin.
- rinse under luke-warm water and lay on a towel to dry. sanitizing your brushes has never been so easy. simply pour some alcohol into a small jar, dip your brush tip in and swirl for a few seconds. wipe off any remaining alcohol and lay flat to dry.
- Separate hair in sections and remove all attached nits with the NPA's LiceMeister® comb, baby safety scissors, or your fingernails. Wash bedding and recently worn clothing in hot water and dry in a hot dryer. Combs and brushes may be soaked in hot water (not boiling) for 10 minutes. Avoid lice sprays!
- Quite simply, turn your lipstick tube up slightly, and wipe off the top layer of lipstick, just with a tissue. Then, pour a small amount of rubbing alcohol (or vodka) into a glass (I think a shot glass would be sensible here) and dip the exposed lipstick into the alcohol for 30 seconds.
