Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
I am sorry for his symptoms.

What treatment did he get for stye?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Nothing. Just let ot resolve on its own. It was small on his lower eyelid. He has had them before. I assume it was a stye. Small white/red bump on lower eyelid

Thank you for the input.
In the picture there is still some yellowish appearance near eye lashes.
You can apply warm, moist compress.
However, I would advise to get him an examination by doctor.
Antibacterial eye drop/ cream can be prescribed.
I hope this information will be helpful.
