Hi,thanks for query.There is no need to worry.Stye when opens up and the material comes out is not dangerous.It will not leave any mark.Keep continue giving antibiotics for the same and be in touch with your doctor.bye.

Hi doctor, ive had a sty on my top eye lid for 5 days now the swelling is sore and red now and seems more painful. Ive been putting a warm compress on my eyelid but it the swelling does not seem to reduce. I am now feeling strain a bit in the other eye and I have also noticed a small swelling in front of my ear (same side as sty eye) and a swelling just beneath my ear (same side as sty). Im now worried that there may be another underlying issue. Can you please advise?

hi! i have a stye on my upper left eye lid, and it seems like it s getting worse as the days go. i ve had it for 3 days now, how long do they normally last, and how can you tell if it s healing or not? i ve also been doing some home treatments by using warm compress for 10 minutes every hour or so.
