Styes will usually take longer than one day to go away even with treatment.

However you can try using a warm compress on the stye for 15 minutes several times per day and wash the area around the eye with mild soap and water and apply a warm tea bag to the stye for 15 minutes or until the tea bag cools off.

Some ointments that are antibiotic can also help the stye and massaging the stye with clean fingers and hands can help get rid of the stye quicker but I don't think the stye will go away overnight or within a day.

But you can usually make the stye go away within a few days.
