Another $$ Vet visit? Possible face/eye infection?

Our 3 month old beardie saw the vet 2 weeks ago because his eye was very puffy and constantly had mucus build up. The vet removed it and said it was shed. However, Ive had to soak his eye everyday since and remove the mucus. His face from his nostril to his eye are now visibly swollen. Should I take him back for another expensive vet visit, or is there some type of treatment for this possible infection I can do for him at home?

Any advice is appreciated! We are first-time beardie owners.

Post pic of the eye tank and lighting-- it sounds like he needs antibiotics if there is an infection going- so one of the others on here would need to see the eye to see if a home remedy would work- if not I would be getting another appt-- Tracie drache613 is our vet moderator she might be able to get something to you for the eye
