Pain under eyelid, yellow pus in tear duct. Could you diagnose this?

For the last couple of days the area under my eyelid towards my nose/ forehead just above the tear duct area has been hurting when I shut my eye or touch near the area on my eyelid. This morning when I woke up I noticed it was hurting more then usual and also that its now swollen. I went to a mirror and noticed yellow puss in the area around my tear duct and I suspect that It came from whatever is causing my discomfort and was moved there while my eye was closed when I was sleeping. Could you diagnose this? And let me know how I could treat it?

Hi, Oley,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you might have infected stye or Acute infection in your naso lacrimal duct causing swelling of opening of the duct.
Put antibiotic eye drops 3-4 hourly.
Go for antibiotic medicine after consulting your doctor.
Ok and bye.
