I have a stye on my right eye and it's bloody killing sad

Is there anything I can get to ease it?

In a rush but brew a tea bag in hot water in a mug, put it in the fridge to cool down to chilled then bathe your eye with the teabag. Miracle cure!

Failing that use an antibacterial eye ointment from the chemist.

Goldeneye ointment from the chemist.

Also if you can bear it, pull out the eyelash that is plugging the stye with sterilised tweezers. Immense pain, but incredible relief. And then ointment etc.

You can also heat a potato up and wrap it in a dish towel and hold it to your eye for some relief.

Defo keep going with the heat. I made the mistake of not giving mine enough heat, while the swelling went down it was still there- a small painful lump for about six months until it reabsorbed. It was some crappy eye pencil that caused it.
