Modern treatment

Treatment of internal hordeola is using oral antibiotics which could include dicloxacillin 250mg PO Q6H, erythromycin or tetracycline 250mg PO QID or amoxacillin 500mg PO TID for 10 days. Cold compresses will help to suppress inflammation. Hot compress will help to ripen pus after pus is formed.

Topical antibiotics are usually ineffective. Incision and drainage can be performed if pus is ripe.



TID = ter in die (three times a day)

Q6H = every 6 Hours

QID = quater in die  (Four Times a Day)

PO = by mouth (per Os) or orally
