A stye or "bwingit" is a collection of pus and pulling an eyelash can sometimes help to drain it, which explains why it gets better.
METROSEXUAL: If I pull out an eyelash, will it help cure my sty?
DR. MEDALLE: A sty or binggit is a collection of pus in the lid, and pulling an eyelash can help drain the pus. However, most sties cannot be drained this way, and delaying the treatment may result in an ugly scarred lid. To prevent this, it is best to see your eye doctor who can drain the sty safely. And oh, stick to plucking your eyebrows.
