Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
There is infllammation in the outer layers of eye.If you could get ciplx D eye drop or oflacin DC eye drop then put this 2 to 3hourly and this will take 3days time if the infection doesn't go to the other Eye.In case there is discharge in the morning then Neosporine eye ointment can be applied at bed time.
