Brief Answer:
Zaditor will be more useful.

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.

This seems to be due to some allergy to one of the components of makeup. Here Zaditor is more helpful, being an anti-allergic. Erythromycin is antibiotic and will be useful in case you have an infection, evidenced by some discharge in the morning. In such cases, a nighttime application helps.

I hope I have answered your query.
Do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.
