Quoting Big'n:" Warm compress. Put rice in a tube sock and tie it off, then microwave it. It keeps warm longer than a ... [snip!] ... cloth. 4 times a day for 15 minutes. My daughter had a HUGE one last month. It was gross. It's still not gone away completely."
Quoting Nikki Hart:" Warm compress is about all you can do, although an optometrist told me they can give you antibiotics ... [snip!] ... antibiotics if it gets to bad. I got a really bad sty once and now I have a permanent bump in my eyelid because it scarred :/"
Quoting Meg ♥:" You probably had a chalazion which has very similar symptoms to a typical stye. The only difference is this is a cyst and not a 'pimple' looking stye. "Oh, I didn't know that. I still have the bump and it still occasionally swells and gets "gunky" (sp?)
Quoting Big'n:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Meg ♥:</b>" Did she have a chalazion?"</blockquote> ... [snip!] ... That's what I thought it was, but her doc said it was just a stye. It did end up getting the white head and popping. Ew"

Quoting Vindictive:" Thanks ladies. I feel so bad. I hope it heals by Thanksgiving. She keeps wanting to rub it and is complaining ... [snip!] ... about her eye hurting - I only noticed her eye being red this afternoon, so it's probably in the beginning stages even. "
Quoting Meg ♥:" Is there a lump (cyst) in the middle that can be moved? Kinda gross, I know, sorry!"
