Brief Answer:
Hello

Detailed Answer:
This could either be a sinus infection or conjunctivitis--an eye infection.
The other possibility would be glaucoma.

You need to see a doctor for an evaluation here.

Sinusitis requires a course of antibiotics orally and conjuctivitis needs antibiotic eye drops.

Glaucoma can be treated with specific prescription eye drops
