Brief Answer:
The eye may be infected.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

Popping a pimple near eye is dangerous because it may spread the infection near eye.
You can send me a picture of the eye to see its conditions. Taking count that it is swollen it can be infected.
I think he may need to use antibiotic ointment at the place of infection. Tobramycin ointment is preferable.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
