On one of the doctor appointments, I joked, now in front of another doctor- a friend of mine, that I will eventually start to cluck from all those over boiled eggs and I feel sorry to throw them away. The doctor continued to laugh even more than I did- no one had told me that the same egg can be re-used only with boiling. And, that it is recommendable to apply it even warmer, more often and hold it for a longer period. However, it was too late for my stye. I had to undergo a surgery, but before the surgery, the doctor said to the nurse: ‘’we will have to do THAT’’, which meant that beside the usual drops for anesthesia, they will inject my eye and I did not know where exactly, but I know that it was very much painful. Also, the pulling of the “cemented” content from the eyelid did not hurt, but I felt it anyway. I returned home with a covered eye and half of my head…
After a certain amount of time the stye reappeared since it was not fully removed, presumably. Then, I knew better- for a couple of days I applied the warm egg on the eye non-stop. First, while it was still hot, I rolled it into a cloth or a napkin, and as the egg was becoming warmer, I held only the egg on the eye. All of the remaining content leaked without a problem.
Of course, as it has been written about the excessive use of Tobradex, I got a cataract on that eye. They told me that it was not for operation, but they did it anyway.
I will point out again, that if you encounter problems with a stye, conjunctivitis, and any kind of rash in or on the eye, a tingling sensation or something similar- it will not cost you a thing to boil an egg and apply it on the eye until all of the symptoms disappear or until a yellowish-white grain that has to leak, appears; Certainly, with an obligatory consultations with a doctor.
