A Stye is very painful and tender and appears as a solitary swelling.
At this point in time, there is swelling without pain, so best will be a cold compress to reduce the swelling. A hot compress is used when one sees a Stye and wants it to drain out the pus by hot fomentation.
Hot compress can make the swelling you have go worse. Take the anti allergic and apply cold compress four to five times a day for 10-15 minutes each.
Also, you can start on an anti inflammatory medication available OTC.
