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. Both are used by some physician with similar results. Trobrex no steroid.
