The Heathen has a stye on her eyelid, not on the waterline.
Yesterday it was about the size of a pea, today it's a tad smaller. I've been doing a warm compress to help draw it out a bit, but it doesn't seem to be making much of a difference. If it's not much smaller or still hurting her tomorrow I'll be taking her to the doctor.
She's had one before, but it was small and the compress worked in 2 days.
Is there anything else I can do for her right now?

Keep up with the hot compress, I know there is some kind of eye gel you can get. I found it burned more than anything. So I stopped and continued with the hot compress. Did it 3-5 times a day for about 10 min.

I got them a lot when I was younger because of allergies. My mom always bought medicine at the drug store for it and it went away in two-three days. It was a cream that went right on the eye.

I heard about the ointment too, but I know she wouldn't let it last long. She'd rub it right off. She's 4.5 and she's as iffy with her eyes as I am.
When I was pregnant with her I had a really bad eye infection and needed to get an injection in my eye. DH had to hold my arms behind me so I wouldn't swing at the doctor

I'll stick with compress today, and see how it is tomorrow.
Thanks ladies

I've heard of using a warm tea bag.

We got them all the time when we were young. My dad always rubbed his thick band gold ring on it. I swear it worked wonders. Not sure of the logic behind it but non invasive and it helped..GL!



found this.. worth a shot too?? baby shampoo??

It's not on the waterline. Its on her upper eyelid. Like a pencil width above the lash line.
