Disappearing Styes

Forty plus years ago when I was expecting Trip, I developed a sty on my eyelid. My wonderful obstetrician suggested an old time remedy, rubbing a gold ring on it. It worked. Ever since when I have felt a little bump popping up, I would do the same, and they all went away, nipped in the bud. And if I were with someone who said they were developing a sty, like with a co-worker this week, I would hand them my wedding ring and tell them how to use it. Curious if other people knew about this trick, I decided to look it up and found they do. Try it next time. It can save you a doctor visit.
