How can a stye be treated?

I have a stye. It was at the bottom and I popped it. It went away and came back on the top and the swelling is now super big. I have antibiotics and G.E. Erythromycin 0.5 eye ointment. It doesn t say anywhere that it goes directly in or on the eye. Can you please help? Thanks

Some advices that I can give to you are:     
-Apply warm compresses for 10 to 15 minutes, three or four times a day.
-Continue the treatment with erythromycin 0.5 ointment.
-You can take oral antibiotics if you dont feel better.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
