How do you treat a stye on the leyelid?

Welcome to Just Answer:

To resolve the stye on the eyelid, I suggest that you apply warm/hot compresses to the eyelid twice daily. For eye discomfort, I suggest that you use over the counter Zaditor eye drop or Preservative free tear drop such as Refresh or Genteal tear drop 4 times daily. If the stye fails to resolve in in 2-3 weeks, I suggest that you follow-up with your eye doctor for closer evaluation and possible prescription for Tobradex eye ointment.
