Quick remedy for a sty

Submitted by Marilyn

With a cotton swab, dab a bit of BABY SHAMPOO on the sty and follow with warm compresses. Start as soon as the sty is evident and it should be okay within 2 days.

This is the standard method in our family and was given to my daughter-in-law by her pediatrician.

Who ever said baby shampoo doesnt hurt the eyes, is definatly full of bulls***! But, the swelling has gone down, now Im just working on getting rid of the pain. Still sensitive to touch or blink, but atleast its not puffy, right?
