Pimples of the eyelids are known as sties. These pimples can develop due to bad hygiene or using expired cosmetics.The most likely cause for the development of these pimples is a bacterial infection. The staphylococcus bacteria is the most common agent of infection. If left untreated sties can take up to a week to resolve themselves, although they may not resolve on their own. In rare cases sties swell without bursting placing pressure on your eyeball.

Step 1

Keep your eye clean. Close your eyes when you wash your face and do not apply make up to the area of the pimple.

Step 2

Apply a warm wet washcloth to your eye for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat this several times a day. This can speed up the recovery process considerably.

Step 3

Do not wear contact lenses until the sty has resolved itself. Also do not touch your eyes without first thoroughly washing your hands.
