Get Exam: What you are describing may indicate an infection of a meibomian gland in the eyelid. Start warm compresses now. Sometimes antibiotic drops are needed, rarely surgical drainage.

Keep treating: This could still be related to the stye that has not fully recovered. Would try warm compresses and use artificial tears as needed. If this does not improve the symptoms or if it worsens then you should see an eye doctor.
