Brief Answer:
Try local steroid preperations

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome and thanks for your query.
I understand your concern and acknowledge how uncomfortable you are.
It would be good to get a culture of the discharge, so that we know whether it is due to a bacterial infection or not. If it is not, a steroid eye drop with a steroid ointment at night would be helpful. If it is bacterial, an antibiotic depending on the sensitivity can be added to the steroids.
Best wishes,
