Eye stye or hordeolum is a small, painful lump on the inside or outside of the eyelid. It is actually an abscess filled with pus and is usually caused by a staphylococcus bacteria eye infection.
Styes are common with most people experiencing one or two of them at some stage in their life. Styes are usually visible on the surface but can appear deeper inside the eyelid.

Turmeric is a root of the plant and it has anti fungal elements in it. Drinking of milk once daily mixed with turmeric can thus help in effective reduction of eye stye. It also speeds up the process of healing.
Take a handful of parsley and brew it in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Dip a clean cloth in that water and apply over the closed lid of your affected eye. Lie back and relax for about 15 minutes after completion of the process. The parsley acts as a purification agent for the eyes which helps in bringing out the toxic materials. That in turn helps in a speedy healing.

Garlic is quite well known because of its medicinal values for healing infections. You can get rid of the eye stye by applying fresh garlic juice around the infected area.
- Guava Leaves:
This is another very effective way to get relief from the pain of eye stye. All you need to do is warm up the guava leaves and put it inside a warm cloth. Then compress that cloth over your affected eye.
- Tea Bag
Dip an herbal tea bag into boiling water and then slowly press it over your eyes. Keep a tab on the temperature and try to take it down to warm before applying. The herbal tea helps in bringing out the pus. It also helps in reducing the infection.
