Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Hi, I have eye stye... It is so frustrating. Could you please tell me some advice on how to <a href="">get rid of a stye</a>?

Normally a stye will go away on its own. If it's causing you a lot of pain you should see your doctor to have it removed.
You can buy stye eye drops that help with swelling and irritation, I usually take a warm wash cloth and hold it on my eye 4 a bit and they soften up enough to pop.
You're not supposed to pop a stye. It's just a little pocket of infection and they will heal on their own. You can use a warm compress if it's causing discomfort. And if it's causing a lot of pain you an see your doctor. But, for the most part, they go away on their own.
