Natural remedies for a stye

All the pharmacies are back ordered on polysporin for styes. What are some effective natural treatments. I want to stop it before it swells all up if I can.

Hmmm. I've never used anything for a stye. I just give it a few days and it always clears up.

I'm mobile.... sorry for the typos!

I know breast milk works wonders! Other than that I don't know, sorry.

Wish I had some breast milk, my daughter nurses before bed but I think she only gets a couple drops.

Re: Natural remedies for a stye

Hot, salty water on a clean cloth, applied often, and re-applied as soon as the compress cools.

Good luck!

My mom used a frozen butter knife. I can't remember if it worked or not?

When I get one I use cold compresses several times a day and it takes a few days to go down.

Yup.

I used to get them all the time as a kid. This worked.
