Swollen eyelid, pus formation and watering from the eyes. What is it?

My upper, left eyelid was swollen but not as bad now, I had yellow gunk coming out of my eye yesterday but today it just is watering, and I feel like I have send in my eye. If I lay flat on my back with both eyes closed I can get some relief. I am on vacation in St. Maarten or I already would have gone to a doctor. I just noticed that my left eyelid looks like it's starting to peel while my right one isn't, and my right eye is fine. Could I possibly have sunburned my eyeball?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
If there is yellow discharge you possibly have contacted some infection. The feeling having Sand in your eye(foreign body sensation) with watering suggests your cornea(black/dark portion of your eye) might be inflammed.
The eyelids peel if they remain swollen for long.
Do you have any diminution of vision associated.
Please see your ophthalmologists.
