What Causes Black Eye?

Hi, i have a sty on the inner part of my bottom eyelid.(not the water line). I have a bump which is not painful anymore, but the pump is visible. I have used hot compress with tea bags to help open the pore and release the bacteria. With in the passed few day I noticed that I have a black eye closer to the bridge of my nose, is this normal? I have had a sty before and never had the "black eye" appear.

Hello
It seems from the history that you had a style for which you have done hot compression and you are having black eye.
This is because of effect of hot compression.
This will resolve by itself and no need to worry. The treatment for style is by use of antibiotics and antiinflammatory drugs.

Thank you
