For over a week I tried every remedy known to man to get rid of my sty. I just had surgery on my hip, then a couple weeks out of hospital I developed a sty which made my eye terribly swollen. I was using a cane for my hip and because the sty looked so terrible I started wearing sunglasses when I went out. (All I needed was a seeing eye dog to complete the picture. ) Feeling very discouraged I prayed for a cure and heard "potato" as a divine answer. Well after trying at least 6 or 7 remedies which failed, I finally decided to listen. I cut a raw potato in half and microwave for 30 seconds. I applied it to my eye (test temperature tentatively first so you don't burn eye. ) After less than an hour my sty was 90% gone! Thank you God!

My husband had a sty eye he cut a Baked Potato in half and put it on his eye for a few minutes, did this a few times and it took the infection away. It absorbs the infection into the potato.
