In brief: Part of treatment

Use of tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) is a combination of antibiotic and steroid which helps treat infection portion of sty and manage inflammation.
This plus adequate drainage is often effective. You should see a local opthalmologist to manage. Prolonged use of tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) is not recommended due to risk of fungal infections, etc in the eye.
