What is the treatment for a stye on right eye lid?

I have a stye on my right eye lid. The lid is red & swollen & the white "core" of the stye is right in the middle of the eyelid & is partially under the eyelid. I also have a pocket of fluid under the eye near the cheek bone. The eye is very sore & also itches. I have applied hot compresses to it but it has not helped. I have had this since last Monday, Dec. 31. The eyelid stye seems to be right over the pupil of my eye & is affecting my vision tho not blocking it.

Thank you for your question.
Request you to initially consult your ophthalmologist prior to taking any medications.
you need to wash your eyes frequently with fresh clean water and maintain strict hygienic measures while washing your eye and hands.
Eye drops containing ciprofloxacin are generally prescribed for stye.
However since you mention your eyes are itchy and sor,request you to consult your ophthalmologist to rule out other ophthalmic conditions.
