What Does It Mean If My Stye Is Still Hard After Hot Compresses

I popped a stye on my outer lower eyelid after using hot compresses and it came to a head now it is really swollen how do i get the swelling to go dow?
I have a horrible, hurting stye in my eye. How do I get rid of it? Thank you. Thats it. I've had it for 3 days now, and am just putting hot compresses on my eye. I feel like putting hydrogen peroxide in my eye! can I do that safely? It sure worked well
DO : Do not put peroxide in your eye! often, a series of hot compresses during the day will work, with shorter duration for each compress. Many of my patients have success with 3 or 4 compresses, 5-10 minutes each session. The potato works well, some patients have mentioned that they have used a hard-boiled egg the same way. This holds heat longer than using a washcloth alone. If this does not work within a week or so, then eye drops, or surgical removal will be successful. See your eye doctor if compresses fail! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Stye on my eye my eyelid is slightly swollen also the white of my eye is red/ irritated is that normal? I've been using hot compresses to help
Common symptoms: You are doing the right thing by using warm compresses. Most tend to apply them too infrequently - apply very warm compresses over the involved eye for 4 minutes at a time 5-6 times a day. This will usually melt it away in several days. As long as the vision is normal, this should work. Using compresses 1-2 times per day will not usually work. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a stye on my lower eyelid. I am a truck driver's wife, am in the truck. no access to warn compresses or any meds til fri still wear contactS?
Contact wear OK: Styes are in the substance of the lid and the infection they contain will only leak onto the eye if they are very large, pus filled and leak. Most are small and cannot interact with a contact, so you may wear yours. If the eye gets red, painful, or the vision changes, then remove the lens until you get an evaluation. ...Read more
Have a stye. A bump in the middle of my top right eyelid. Doing compresses/ciproflox drops. Bump turning brown color..Does this mean it's healing?
I have a bump on my upper eyelid. I was told it was a stye. Doing compresses and prescribed drops. It's starting to dry out. Do I still do compresses?
Yes: I recommend doing the warm compresses till the redness, swelling & soreness completely resolves. Remember to only use the eye medication for the prescribed amount of time. It's also a good idea to continue performing lid hygiene on a routine basis, especially if you're predisposed to styes. Good luck. ...Read more
