How does it take for a stye scar to go away? (Photo)
7 months ago
They Stye lasted about a week now it is no longer draining but the bump is still there. I have keloid skin an I am worried I will not be able to get it removed. How long should I wait before seeing a doctor? Will hot compresses still work after it's all the way drained?

Inflammation can sometimes cause keloids or dark scar discoloration. I would wait a few weeks before conservative treatment with topical creams.
