You can get rid of a stye by applying a warm compress over the eye for around 10 to 15 minutes.

You can use a warm wet washcloth applied to the eye and stye for 10 to 15 minutes 3 times per day and the stye will normally go away within a few days to a few weeks.

You can also use a tea bag as a warm compress over the stye which will get rid of the stye.

If you have any makeup and have used it on the affected eye with the stye then throw the makeup out since it could be infected and cause a new stye to appear.
