Sty that won't go away

    One of my boys keeps having a sty come up on his eye. It goes away and then comes back and sometimes it gets HUGE. The other night it seemed to have burst in his sleep, and it's gone down. But it kind of looks like it might come back.

    I've had the doctor look at it before, and they seemed really unconcerned. But it just keeps happening---always the same place on the same eye.

    Anyone else experienced this?

    I have heard that a sty that wont go away is an infection and needs to be treated. Have you tried a used tea bag?

    I had some trouble with sty's a few years back and my eye doctor recommended cleaning my eye lids with Johnson's baby shampoo. Put a little bit on a q-tip, wet it and rub on your eye lid. It stings, but worked for me. Not sure how your boy would react to the sting, but maybe if you water the shampoo down a bit more it wouldn't sting as much.
