What should I do about my internal stye. I have had it for almost a week now and it is extremely painful. I went to the doctors and they said to soak it which I have tried but has not helped.

Internal stye is a bacterial infection of the meibomian glands inside the eyelids. Internal styes tend to be more severe and occur a little less often than an external stye. But we have to look into the details of the problem. Let's have a detailed discussion to ensure proper treatment.
