Burning sensation, Stye, on anti-bacterial ointment, did not help. Any suggestion?

I went to urgent care a week ago for a problem with my eyes. The doctor said I had a stye. I was given an anti-bacterial ointment. My eyes didn't seem to be getting better, so I went to a GP on Wednesday. He provided an oral antibiotic.. Today Saturday, my eyes are still burning, it looks like the stye in my right eye opened, but nothing drained out. Should I be going to another doctor now?

Greetings of the day
If the stye has opened up then definitely there would have been decrease in size of swelling. It also requires topical antibiotic. Use Ciprofloxaxin eye drops during day every 2 hourly and Ciprofloxaxin ointment applied at night. Hot fomentation will definitely reduce the symptoms.
Take care
