My 3 year old daughter started with what look like to be a stye in the inner lower lid and had that for about 2 weeks then started to notice a bump filled with white pus fluid on the outer lower lid and swollen all around i took her to her pediatrician and they gave me some eye drops to put in after I did warm compressions so the infection would not spread. I have been doing the warm compressions and eye drops but now it looks like she has pink eye along with the stye.. She wants to scratch her eye due to the itch and its red with draining pus all around the eye. I will be taking her to her doctor again tomorrow but wanted to have someone explain to me if this is actually normal to have both at the same time??View Thread
