Stye - Ruptured and drained

Two days ago my stye ruptued and drained on its own. It is still a little red and a little raised. How long does it take for a stye to COMPLETELY disappear?
It doesn't bother me, but it is still noticable.

Thank you for any reply,

Re: Stye - Ruptured and drained

If it drained into your eye it doesn't hurt to check up with your doctor as they may give you antibiotics to prevent further infection from the drainage. But if it drained and does not irritate you anymore, what's left should be gone within a few days.
