How to cure a stye on the inner corner of the eye?

I am pretty sure that I have a stye in the inner corner of my one eye. I went and got over the counter Polysporin Eye & Ear drops. Since using the drops this morning my eye has been releasing a white puss does this mean it is getting better or should I go to the doctor?

Hello
It seems from the history that you are having stye on the inner corner of the eye.
The treatment is by use of antibiotic eye drops and antiinflammatory drugs.
No need to worry about the pus discharge from the stye , apply hot compression once the pus is drained the condition will resolve quickly.
You can continue using antibiotic eye drops, along with this need to use antiinflammatory drug for pain relief.

Thank you
