I have now had a stye in my eye for two weeks. It hasn’t been painful, and after checking the web, and its pictures of styes it appeared that they were not terribly dangerous, so it seemed prudent to just wait it out. However, since it has given no indication of clearing up, it now seems even more prudent to go to my doctor tomorrow and have him look into it. This may be a golden staph infection, because I spent a week living with a friend, two weeks ago, who recently had a serious a Staphylococcus aureus bacterial infection,
It’s better to take care of problems early and ask questions later.
