Effective remedy for stye: rub your palms and apply the palm heat on your eyelids. Do this 10 times and repeat it 4 to 5 times a day.

For sty I use what my mother taught me; boric acid dissolve in hot water, cooled to warm and apply to eye by dubbing with clean cloth every couple of hours. The older generations used this for baby care too.
