People experiencing this condition have symptoms such as pain, edema, burning sensation, eye irritation, blurring, sensitivity to light and secretions. To get rid of these symptoms you can use successfully the following remedy.
Before seeing the ophthalmologist to get rid of a stye, I recommend you to use the following natural remedy that will banish the stye overnight.
Green tea has anti-inflammatory properties, so it reduces pain and inflammation in the eye area. It is also rich in tannic acid, which has the role of preventing infections, and many other nutrients and antioxidants that help to relieve the discomfort symptoms of the eye stye.
Dip a green tea bag in warm water for a few minutes. Then, squeeze well the tea bag of excess water and apply it to the affected eye. Hold it for five minutes, and repeat the procedure several times a day, until the eye stye reduces its size, and you won't feel any discomfort at all. The same thing you can do with the black tea bags, because they are as effective as green tea.
