am surprised doc hasn't given you antibiotic cream in the interim.

Meanwhile clean face towel every day (or use a clean flannel to dry with every time - less to wash)

I had a terrible stye a few months ago, so bad that my whole face ached and I couldn't open my eye. The doctor gave me a course of flucloxacillin and it got rid of it within a few days. I'm surprised you haven't been gicen anything TBH.

Mine ached all around my cheekbones. I felt quite unwell with it, almost like flu and I felt disorientated and spaced out.
