I had a sty that was sore and painful starting basically 3

Customer Question

I had a sty that was sore and painful starting basically 3 +/- weeks ago.
The local Ophthalmologist felt it was just a sty or a blocked oil gland.
He had me treating it with an eye drop 3 times per day in this eye.
It has gotten better but there is still a "pimple" with some puss that still remains on my eye lid. As of yesterday I am now putting neomycin and polymyxin on the are 2 times per day
I have another appointment in 2 weeks....Do you think I should wait for this or should I get another opinion. I am 74 years old...in good health, active etc.
I am concerned.
thank you *****

This is Dr. David

I'm glad your sty is getting better.

you can always get a second opinion,

but what you are doing is correct.

keep using the eye drops

you can also use a warm towel compresses on the eye as well

get more rest and improve your immune system with a better diet and more sleep and drink more water.

most sty's are caused by a skin viral infection

your immune system will fight it off if you get more rest and sleep to help your immune system.

let me know if you have other questions.
