Hello there..... hold the warm compress over the affected eye for five to 10 minutes, repeat this three or four times a day until the infection clears up or releases some pus... The warmth of the compress will encourage to release any pus, which will drain away.... Consult ophthalmologist for further evaluation and treatment....
