First we have to confirm whether there is infected discharge which is yellowish white in colour and thick or only watery discharge.
If infection is recurrent you may have to do culture of the discharge and see the doctor again to give correct antibiotics.
If it is only watery discharge it may be due to a condition called nasolacrimal duct block.and may need some massage near the innerside of the eye.
In any case get the advice of the doctor .
All the best
