3 year old child, suffering from swollen right cheek and eyelid, foul smelling breath, nasal congestion, fever. Due to teething?

My 3 year old daughter s right cheek and right eyelid are swollen. The swelling in her cheek seems to be inside as well. Her breath also smells really bad. She is also experiency a lot of nasal congestion . Her temperature at 3:00AM this morning was 101.7 degrees It went back to 98.6 degrees about an hour after giving her motrin. However by 11:00AM it was back up again. Could this be happening because of a new tooth coming in?

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Your daughter has acute sinusitis.
She needs paracetamol, a nasal decongestant, an antibiotic, an anti-allergic syrup and vapor inhalation.
She will need an X ray of her sinuses for the diagnosis.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
