Probably not: If you have consulted a doctor, he has eliminated any more serious problem. If a stye opens and drains, sometimes there is a little bleeding. Just keep it clean, apply heat and most likely the stye will resolve without problems.

Bleeding stye: Once styes drain, they tend to resolve more quickly. A little bleeding is no big concern and it should stop soon. Applying pressure can aid in stopping the bleeding. If worsening pain, increased lid swirling or redness, you need to see a doctor.
