Hello, A sty is a bump that forms on or in the eyelid as the result of a blocked gland. Foreign substances such as makeup and dust can also clog the gland's opening if not properly washed away. A non-infected chalazion similarly will resolve on its own, though over a much longer period of time. The most conservative treatment is application of frequent warm compresses. Squeezing or cutting the hordeolum can cause the skin to become scarred.you can take usaul pain killers.
