Soak the tea bag in a dish of warm water, and wipe over the eyes for around 5-10 mins as often as needed. Afterward, he came out goo free, and eyes were not red and puffy anymore.

Have the teabag in ab eggcup of water to keep it moist. When you’ve bathed the eye do not dry the eye. You can dry around the eye but not the eyelashes or the inner part of the eye. Repeat a couple of times a day for two days max and your sty/ stys will be gone. It has worked for me always.
