Hi....., Styes are usually caused by an infection with staphylococcus bacteria ... Most styes get better without treatment within a few days or weeks. External styes may turn into yellow spots and release pus after three to four days. Internal styes are more painful and may last slightly longer. A warm compress (a cloth warmed with warm water) held against the eye will encourage the stye to release pus and heal more quickly.
