Sty can cause discomfort which leads to scratching. When this happens, the sty become irritated more and can lead to further swelling, difficulty in blinking, light sensitivity and watering of the eye.

Wash a handful of parsley and put it in a bowl. Boil water in a pot and pour 2-3 cups onto the parsley. Leave it for 5 minutes or until the parsley becomes steep. Remove the parsley or strain to remove particles from the water. Dip a clean cloth to the solution and wring. Apply the wash cloth on the affected eye and leave for 10 minutes. Discard the solution after the treatment.
Make a tea by mixing 1 tsp. dandelion and 1 cup boiling water. Let it steep for 5 minutes before straining. Drink this fresh dandelion tea 1-2 times a day. This herb can help eliminate bacteria in the body which is causing the sty. You can also use the tea to wash your sty when it has erupted to prevent further infection.
