Conjunctivitis : It sounds like you have conjunctivitis which could be bacterial or viral. Of course there are other possibilities for your symptoms including iritis or a corneal erosion. All of these require some kind of treatment, but with different drops depending on the cause. See an ophthalmologist for the proper diagnosis and treatment.
