Customer Question

I have recently developed a yellow film like coating on the white of my eye at the inside corner It is also bloodshot due to my rubbing it. I have been to see nurse practitioner within my local doctors practice and she has taken a swab to check for any infection. She gave me chloramphenicol ointment for conjuctivitis but have been using this since Monday but have not seen any improvement in this eye as yet. Eyesight does not seem to be affected.

Could you advise me as to what this might be and the cause.
