I get Sty's a couple of times a year. It's so annoying. I use [manuka honey] to get rid of them QUICK. It's good for soooo many things. I would never be without it. I'm sure any brand of 16 would do. As soon I feel a sty coming on (you know that pain you get when you blink), with a CLEAN finger or Q-tip, I just rub a bit into my lashes right where the pain is. I do this two to three times a day. The sty never comes full force and is gone completely within 3 days. Do your best to not get the honey into your eye because it really stings and your eye will water like crazy. Do yourself a favor and try this. If you catch the sty first thing, you will be so happy in a few days when you are sty-free!
