Remedies to cure a stye quickly
Although there are many medical treatments for stye, it is always better to go for natural and home remedies. This article will give you brief information on the various types of natural remedies available for eye stye.
Milk and turmeric
The curcumin has antifungal properties that are beneficial for skin conditions. Drinking milk (organic, preferably from free range cows) once a day mixed with turmeric can therefore help in the effective reduction of the stye. It also speeds up the healing process.
Take a clean cloth and dip it in warm water. Squeeze out the excess water and then apply that cloth to the stye affected eye for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat this process 4-5 times a day. The warm compress helps drain the pus from the styes. It also provides relief from burning eyes.
Take a handful of parsley and cook it in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Dip a clean cloth in the water and apply to the closed eyelid of the affected eye. Rest and relax for about 15 minutes after the completion of the process. Parsley acts as a purifying agent for the eyes and helps to remove toxic materials. That in turn helps in the quick healing of the stye.
The use of guava leaves is another very effective way to get relief from the pain caused by the stye. All you need to do is heat the guava leaves and put them in a warm cloth. Then lay that cloth on the affected eye to quickly notice relief in case of burning.
The garlic is well known for its medicinal values to cure infections. You can get rid of the stye by applying fresh garlic juice around the infected area.
You can use onion slices above the infected eye to get rid of the pain and also to speed up the healing process of the stye. It is evident that the use of onion can be a bit painful, especially since it can irritate the eye, but it is very effective and therefore it is worth giving it a try because it has many properties that can help you to heal the stye quickly.
Dip a bag of herbal tea in boiling water and then slowly work it over your eyes. You must make sure that the temperature is warm, neither cold nor, of course, hot. Herbal tea, especially chamomile tea, helps to remove the pus from the stye. This effective home remedy also helps in reducing the infection.
