The gold wedding ring method is the most popular natural remedy to heal a stye, according to Earth Clinic readers who tried this method.
Here’s one success story. ST from Tokyo, Japan writes Earth Clinic:
The gold wedding band cure works. I was developing a painful style where I could even feel the lump rubbing on my eye. My mother had one a while back and tried the baby shampoo and potato cures but neither worked so she had to go to the doctor and have it lanced as well as take antibotics and it took 2 months to fully heal. Therefore, I decided to try something different and went for the gold band method. I had my doubts but I since I had a ring on hand and it would be completely free to try, I thought I would try it. I cleaned my band, pulled up my eyelid (the sty was inside my eyelid), and I rubbed for about 1 minute. The sty had a puss filled yellow tip but the ring did not cause the puss to come out on my eye, thank goodness. The band felt really good and gave a lot of relief, but still I thought “this can`t work”. I figured it was just the coolness of the ring that was giving relief. I had to go to a meeting so I stopped rubbing after 1 minute and left.
About 2 1/2 hours later I returned home and suddenly realized my eye wasn`t hurting anymore so I checked it and it no longer had the puss tip and it had shrunk and was the color of my skin. That night I rubbed the sty a little more and woke up with no pain. A little of the sty was still there but no pain and no puss. 3 days later it was gone.
