In brief: See Ophthalmologist

There are several possibilities.
It may never have gone away, it could be coming back due to an underlying infection on the eyelid margin or perhaps it is not a stye at all but something else. You should see an ophthalmologist.

In brief: See eye doctor

Use a hot wet towel compress for 10 minutes twice a day.
See eye doc to see if needs to be drained. Rarely, can be skin cancer.
