Now that being said, if the swelling gets dramatically worse, is accompanied by redness and even fever, or if there is significant yellowish-greenish discharge from the eye or the eye becomes significantly red or the vision starts to become significantly affected, then you should see your ophthalmologist right away as these are signs of possible infection.

My opinion is solely informative and does not constitute a formal medical opinion or recommendation. For a formal medical opinion and/or recommendation you must see an eye doctor.
I think if it is draining, then that is the desired effect and you should continue with the hot compresses, but if it stops draining and becomes more red and painful or is accompanied by fevers, then a trip to the GP should be in order.
