Pus around his eye = infection. Don't put anything else in his eye and take him to the vet ASAP. You may have gotten soap in his eye, he rubbed his eye to get the soap out, caused an ulcer and it got secondarily infected or the conjunctiva could just be infected and the bath is a red herring. Either way, he needs a prompt vet trip before he makes it traumatically worse.
