Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question. Having a Stye can be very uncomfortable.
There are many things you can do to help the swelling and the burning go away.
Styes and chalazions can be treated by applying warm compresses. Apply for 10 minutes. Do this four times a day.

Do NOT attempt to squeeze a stye or any other type of eyelid bump. Let it drain on its own.

Antibiotic creams may help recurrent or persistent styes. Some large styes need to be lanced to drain the infection.

If the swelling does not go away, please see your doctor.

Best of luck,
