Hello, I went through your query, it would have been better if you have attached image of it,, by your description, it could be Acute dacryocystitis, which is an infection of the tear sac (lacrimal sac) . The reasons for the infection could be a blocked tear duct (nasolacrimal duct). A lacrimal stone plugging the opening from the lacrimal sac into the tear duct could be an other reason., Needs to be treated with antibiotic and other supportive measures, please consult ophthalmologist.
