WARM SALT WATER FLUSH- IT WORKS FAST!!!!I'm 30 years old, and I've had a very bad history of stubborn and long lasting styes. I've tried several home-made remedies, including Over the counter eye drop antibiotics, but
these did NOT work for me (my stye took approximately 1.5 weeks to go away):

DID NOT WORK:
1. hot tea bag compresses 10x a day
2. warm rice compresses
3. polysporin/other eye remedies
4. Baby Shampoo

Finally I tried something that worked. As soon as I wake up or start getting that achy pain that tells me a stye is coming I do the following.

1. Wash the infected eye with Johnson's Baby Shampooo.
2. Take 1 cup of WARM water (not too hot, as this could burn) and mix it well with 1.5 TEASPOON of salt water.
3. Flush out your infected eye with the salt water. If you are able to, you can also use an instrument to help you do this, e.g a syringe or a dental monoject
4. Please note that your eye WILL STING as a result of the salt, but if it stings too much, just rinse it with plain tap water again,or use 1 teaspoon of salt instead of 1.5.

Rinse with salt water as many times possible throughout the day, and you should notice that the stye will shrink quickly.

The above mentioned hydrogen peroxide method followed by saline rinses works quickly for me. Not so sure about the urine face wash or mother’s milk methods
