Welcome to Just Answer:

It is likely that you have infected and obstructed tear duct. This needs close evaluation by the oculoplastic eye doctor for probing and irrigation along with topical antibiotics (vigamox) 4 times daily for 14 days, and oral doxycycline antiboitics 100mg twice daily for 14 days. In case this is just bacterial conjunctivitis, these treatment regimen will also resolve the problem. So, I just that you follow-up with your eye doctor for closer evalution and treatment. There is nothing over the over to treat such severe case of eye infection.
