Hi,
Welcome to HCM!

It primarily appears that you are suffering from Conjunctivits (Inflammation of the conjunctiva). It is quite commonly seen during this period of the year.

You need to use antibiotic eye drops about 3-4 times a day for 5 days. This will take about 4-6 days to cure.
For relief from pain, do hot fomentation of your eye and use painkillers.
The discharge may be removed as and when required.

For confirmation, you might pay a visit to an Ophthalmologist.

Hope this information helps. Feel free to ask if you have any other doubts.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

With regards,
Dr. Sridhar Reddy
