First, I would stop rubbing the eye since that seems to have made things worse.  You could have several things such as allergies, dry eyes, thyroid eye disease, keratitis, scleritis, episcleritis.  Get an appointment with an ophthalmologist as soon as possible and try some artificial tears in the meantime.
