Fluid pocket in eye, Tobramycin, irritation?

I have a bump on the white of my eye . I went to eye doctor and he said I have a fluid pocket that is from allergies and stuff. gave me Tobramycin Dexametasone to use 1 drop 4 times a day. It has not got better but does not hurt any worst just kind of irritated and contact rubs. The dr called it something long but I cannot remember what he said. Does this sound right. He said sometimes instead of ichey, watery eyes it kind of builds up.

It seems from the history that you had a bump on the white part of the eye, for which you are on treatment by tobramycin dexamethasone eye drops which is a combination of antibiotic and steroid.
The swelling is non infective but antiinflammatory for which your eye doctor has started antibiotic with steroid eye drops. The lesion can be episcleritis or phylectunular conjunctivitis or inflammed pterygium.
I advice you to continue the same treatment as advised by your eye doctor.
Thank you
