In brief: Infected tear sac

Your symptoms are typical of an infection in the lacrimal sac where tears are collected before they drain into the back of your nose.
This is called dacryocystitis. It is very important to have this treated promptly and aggressively to prevent any complications from this infection. If there is no response to oral antibiotics, you may need to be treated with intravenous medications.
