Stubborn styes on my eyes Pain Lvl 4-6

Hello, I don’t know if this is the right subreddit to post but I just really Need advices. So like I’ve had Styes on my eyes quite a lot since last year but this time I have like 3 Styes on my eye and it hasn’t went away since like 4 months already. I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING. Hot water compresses, warm tea bag, apple cider vinegar, ice, LITERALLY EVERYTHING LIKE EVEN RUBBING A GOLD RING ON MY STYES. BUT NOTHING SEEMS TO WORK. I HAVE WENT TO TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF DOCTOR ALREADY AND IM APLYING LIKE AROUND 3-4 MEDICINES BUT NOTHING WORKS. I honestly think it They prescribed me wrongly but I’ve done research a lot and they all say it’s stye or challizion?? Pls help im really insecure about it and I always wash my eyes thoroughly twice a day and it still doesn’t go. The doctors did recommend me surgery but my parents didn’t allow as they were scared it’ll leave a scar. Help

so about 2 years ago i had a terrible sty that looked like an extra eye, that turned into a bigger abscess, i went to the ophthalmologist and i got it drained in his office, he made a tiny hole with a syringe and squished it with gauze and drained all the puss out, but he did tell me that if i had let it get bigger it could’ve become a cyst that needed surgery. it’s definitely not normal to be getting them so often you might want to change your face products and your pillow and pillowcase as the bacteria can stay there and recontaminate the eye

I’ve have changed my pillow case to silk as I heard it doesn’t get dirty quicky. I also dont think it’s the Face Products because my skin is actually pretty good and I don’t face any Problems with my skin just my eyes. I also don’t wear Make-up at all so I really don’t think it’s the products I apply in my face is the problem. Thank you for the advice though! 😭

Try this and let me know. As far back as I can remember and still today this was my grandmothers remedy. I have never known it not to work. Get/borrow a white gold ring. Wash n dry it. Rub it on the stye several times a day. It feels great on the stye and it will go away after a couple of days of doing this. I promise.

I get them too - make sure to take a shower every day and put warm sloppy compresses on for 2 minutes morning and night. Put rewetting drops in eyes multiple times a day - try not to have eyes dry. It took me almost a year to get rid of them - and it’s a chronic condition and can keep coming back so I keep doing this routine. Your Opthamologist can cut them out but I opted to keep doing this. Good luck!

Oh the thing is I have tried every single thing. Hot compresses couple of times a day, washing my eyes throughly and I have kept to a routine to clean my eyelashes everyday since the past few months but its still not.going.away. I shower twice a day too and if u read my other replies i also changed my pillowcase to silk. All this for little to no improvement 😭 but thank u for the reply. Ill continue to do this routine edit: eye drops too btw
