Can i substitute cipro for keflex to treat an eye infection related to a stye?

Speak to your doctor

Eyes
Keflex is an older antibiotic but is extremely effective (and liekly moreso than Cipro) against the bacteria that tend to be involved in eyelid infections. It is advisable to stick with the medication that your doctor prescribes, rather than trying to save money by using a medication that you have left over from a previous infection.

What is the best treatment for a pig stye in the eye?

Pig Stye?

Eye_health
Microwave a clean potato with the skin on for four minutes. Wet a wash cloth or small towel with warm or hot water. Squeeze out the excess water and wrap it around the potato. Apply this to the eye lid until it cools down (about 15minutes).This can be repeated intermittently. Please see your opthamologist if no improvement.

I have a Stye hordeolum in eye, what is best treatment.?

Hot packs

Stye
A hordeoulum, or stye, is an inflammation of the glands of Zeiss or Moll. Hot compresses are a good first aid treatment (microwave a potato for the heat ). If this does not resolve it, see your eye MD (ophthalmologist) for her/him to make the correct diagnosis and then have her/him consider treatment with a short course of ophthalmic antibiotic ointment or ophthalmic steroid-antibiotic ointment

I've got eye stye. my doctor told me that I can use neosporin for a treatment. which neosporin is she talking about?

Use heat

Women
Neosporin will have little or no effect. The best first treatment is to apply very warm soaks five to six times per day for 5 minutes each application. This should get rid of it in 2-4 days, If it persists longer than that, see your ophthalmologist.

My 2 year old son has a stye on his upper eye lid. Is there an easy-to-use treatment?

Topical heat

Eyes
Take a wash cloth, and run it under the warm water tap. Apply it to your eye (if you cannot stand it, wait until it cools a little). Then put it on your son's eye for 3 minutes and do this 5 times per day. This will usually cause the stye to melt away or open and discharge. If still present more than 3-4 days, or worsening, see your pediatric ophthalmologist.

Aside from Surgery is there other medical treatment for Stye and Chalzion. Because my eye inflammation last for 3 months and did'nt cure when putting ointment. And I am so scared to have a surgery, is there other medical treatment for Chalzion or stye

Warm

Warm commpresses and lid massage can help, but the use of a tetracycline antibiotic can sometimes help as well--talk to your ophthamologist about this. If you do need to have it excised, your doctor will completely numb it first and it is usually done from the inner side of the lid--you should not feel a thing and there will be no visible scar.
