I'd say it's a blocked tear duct that has become infected.....Possibly started with an ingrown hair......This will only get worse and can lead to "Dry Eye" if not treated......Dry Eye is a painful condition that requires eye drops DAILY, for LIFE.....The drops are expensive and the condition is hard to treat....It happens because of lack of moisture to the eyes....Will eventually lead to blindness if left untreated...

It would be alot safer & much less expensive to get your dog to his/her Vet ASAP.....They can flush the tear duct & give antibiotics (Either oral or eye drops) to heal this.....I wouldn't wait much longer.......Karla
