How to Remove Styes

    • 1). Soak a clean washcloth under warm to hot water.

    • 2). Wring the extra water out of the washcloth.

    • 3). Test the temperature of the washcloth on the back of your hand. If it is too hot, wait a few minutes and test again, before applying it to your eye. The cloth should be as hot as you are comfortable with.

    • 4). Apply the hot cloth directly to the sty. Leave the cloth on, until it becomes cool.

    • 5). Repeat steps 1 through 4, until the sty reduces in size. This hot compress will release the fluid built up in the infected pore.

    • 6). Reduce the risk of additional eye infection by washing the area with mild soap.
