A stye is an inflamed swelling on the edge of an eyelid caused because of bacterial infection of the gland at the base of an eyelash. It causes major discomfort to the person and also makes the person look very weird. You'd always want to look good if you're going out or something and a stye can really mess you up. It also can spread to other body parts and cause a major problem to you.
It's recommended to see a specialist in case it is severe and also recognise the symptoms beforehand. It's depressing as well because you cannot just rid of it easily, but do not worry, we being to you some simple remedies to get rid of them.
To calm down the pain of acacia, you can use acacia. The preparation just needs acacia leaves in glasses of boiled water. Keep the leaves inside of a good amount of time so that the solution cools down a bit and also the essence of the plant passes through the water. Then take a clean cloth and put it in the solution and put it over your eye for at least 10 minutes.
To relieve the pain, cut a fresh tomato into slices and place them on the affected area for 5 minutes for at least 3 times a day. It also helps you to get a brighter skin.
Just add a pinch of chamomile leaves to a glass of water. The filter the solution and let it cool down. Then taking a clean cloth use the solution on the stye twice daily for no less than 10 minutes.
Said to be the most effective natural treatment against a stye, you can use a coriander to get rid of the stye. Boil a spoonful of seeds of coriander in water then let the solution cool down. Filter it and use it on the stye at least 3 times a day.
You use a cucumber to eat (definitely) and also it's used on your eyes when you've applied makeup as it's supposed to give a relaxing effect. As refreshing as the cucumber is, it also helps you to reduce the stye, all you need to do is cut it into slices and put it over the affected area.
Boil a litre of water and then let it cool down. After you have done this, take a clean cloth and then dip it in the water and put it over the stye for a considerable point of time. Try changing the water time to time.
No, you got it wrong, we definitely are not suggesting you to drink tea because it's not going to help you in any way. Tea leaves have tannins that help you to clear the stye. Wet a tea bag, again of course with water and place the bag on the stye every ten minutes a day until it disappears. Hard work pays off.
In a bowl of water, boil 2 parsley leaves and let it cool for a little while. Use a compress on the affected area as it will help to reduce inflammation. Do this at least 2 times a day for better results.
Being a natural antibacterial, Turmeric can also help you get rid of the stye. Boil a cup of water and add a teaspoon of turmeric to it until the liquid reduces by half. Using an eyedropper, pour 3-4 drops on the eye at least 2 or 3 times a day.
Aloe Vera, a medicinal plant can help too. Cut a sheet of the plant in half so that it opens in the middle. Wet a cotton swab into the clear liquid that comes out of the plant and use it in the affected area. Use it for 3-4 times a day and also rinse your eyes with road water or chamomile after.
