You guys are hilarious. My grandmother (MacKay) always rubbed her wedding ring (gold) on a stye…it ALWAYS went away within a day …maybe that is how long it normally takes to cure itself….don’t know but obviously it is a Scottish practice handed down; she also left windows open if someone died at home - or made sure they were closed if they died elsewhere so their spirit wouldn’t come to visit and get stuck in limbo.
