Hi! my son too had a plugged tear duct. I used hot water & soaked a washcloth, wring & place over the eye up to several times a day.
Or brew some tea in hot water remove bags, let cool & place over closed eyes. Tea is a wonderful astringent & you can feel the results as you rest under the damp tea bags! Try it on yourself! Herb teas too! It's great! You can alternate warm cloth-wet, warm tea bags.
We did this treatment when he was young & it worked itself open in it's own time. I think just the wet rags & heat may have been enough to get the circulation going in the area & work it open. I didn't want to have any invasive procedures either so we put quite a bit of effort into this! I hope it clears soon!
