Re: What's the best way to get rid of a stye?
I've had a few of them, myself. For two of them, warm compresses worked well to shrink them until they were completely gone. One of them, the final one, was large and I had to have it lanced by my eye doctor.
I believe he called it a "chalazion". My group health insurance covered the cost of the procedure. He gave me a shot of cocaine close to the eye, which was the worst of the entire procedure. It was over very quickly, for which I was greatly relieved!
Good luck with getting rid of your sty.
