Styes will not last long, and a few days later they will alleviate automatically. But your sister will suffering from the pain. There are home remedies that can help your sister.

    Well, it is actually annoying to have eye stye, especially for children. Generally speaking, a stye is inflammation of the eyelid, usually inside one of the small glands lining the eyelid. And for the causes, infection from bacteria can be the most common one. So to treat it, you should make sure your child stay away from bacteria. Also, having a pair of eye patch can be beneficial too. By the way, just have some cold compresses with ice can be also effective to inflammation. Just have a try.
