Stye, is this overkill?
A few days ago I woke up with pain on my lower eyelid, on the outer corner. It lasted all day, and then when I went to sleep, I woke up with no pain. That day I was fine. So I went to sleep and yesterday woke up with the inner corner in pain and swollen. It hurt all day and today I woke up with it even more swollen and red and painful. Went to the doctor today and he said I have a stye that isn't visible, and I got prescribed oral antibiotics of Cefzil twice a day, as well as Gentak eye ointment three times a day. I feel as if the oral medicine may be overkill? I have for one never heard of Cefzil being used for eye infections, let alone a stye. I thought all I needed would be the ointment. And Cefzil concerns me with all the bad reviews I have read on it... Thoughts?
