It's likely that you have infected eye, from conjunctiva to carnuncle/punctum and now complicated by nasolacrimal duct infection with possible blockage. This means that an infection that started in the eye has extended into the drainage system that goes through the nose. This probably has also caused blockage (partial or complete) of the nasolacrimal duct. At this time you need your eye doctor the evaluate your nasolacrimal system, and start you on antibiotics oral (keflex or doxycycline for 14 days) and drops (vigamox or tobramycin eye drops). You will still need to continue hot/warm compresses especially on the nasal ridge. At the end of antibiotics and after the inflammation settles down, if you continue to tear and/or have discharge, the more aggressive approach will be used. The sooner you get started on antibiotics the faster this will resolve.
