Sorry for late reply.

You can take some self care remedies for stye like

Application of warm compresses is most helpful.

You can do gentle cleanse the affected eyelid with tap water or with a mild, nonirritating soap or shampoo (such as baby shampoo) to help clean crusted discharge.

You can take OTC Advil and Cetirizine.

Also if available over the counter you can use lubricating eye drops or antibiotic eye drops.

Most of the infection subside in few days.

If it'll persist more than 5 days then see your doctor.

Hope this helps.
