My 2 yr old has a recurring eye stye and has had it since August. It will drain, crust over and then re-grow. It is right above the eyelash line.

At first I took the wait and see approach - using warm washcloths in the bath (which speed draining). Then I treated with immune boosters, vit c, echinacea.

Then recently I tried a cycle of Oregon Grape Root -it worked but...the stye came back AGAIN.

It is not painful and I've not wanted to take him to ped since I think they will prescribe abx (according to the reading I've done) -

Anybody have any thoughts or experience with this?
