Summer...I don't know if this can be done with your son, but I had a sty in my eye a while back and my doctor (one of the old school docs) told me to hard boil an egg. While it is still warm, wrap it in a clean dry washcloth. Then put it on the eye. It actually soothes it and helps to open the sty to help it drain. The shape of the egg is perfect to fit the shape of the eye. Of course, test the temperature before putting on the eye!

Just a suggestion.
