I have a stye on my eye. Near the edge (nose edge). Hurts to blink. Never had one before. What do I do?

Go to the pharmacy and get the recommended cream, they will want to see you so don't send anyone to do it for you, it works really quickly, just keep replying under the lid(get help), and don't forget lots of hand washing.

don't rub it.

Golden Eye ointment works a treat - horrible, greasy stuff though. And change your pillowcase every day until it's sorted.

Hot compress should draw it out and calm it down until you can get drops and don't touch it!!!
