Over three months ago ds started getting a lump on his eye. so a month ago i took him to the eye dr and i was told it was a sty and to put warm.conpresses on it twice a day. This was the stye on ds eye lastnight. it was bigger than the night before. this morning i took him into the eye dr for a followup on it. she said to continue the warm compresses and gave me eyedrops that go in 4x a day.

in replies is how it looks now

She told me the first time that it would go away on its own and it would get bigger before it drained. but now its getting so much bigger in just a few days

Def get a 2nd opinion. However for future reference if you have a sty, a warm tea bag a few times a day will work. The tea leaves pull out the junk in the sty. I promise it works!

I agree with the second opinion. I had a friend in school that used to get them really big like that, but they weren't stye's, they were something else. They'd be there for a few months and then suddenly go away, but she did tell me when she first started getting them, they would get super big and have to be lanced. I think she was on a medicated eye drop as well. Hope your LO feels better soon!

I agree with the pp's about getting a second opinion.
