Hi,
Fever,red eyes,high ESR, echo all suggest the doctors may be suspecting Kawasaky disease.
3 weeks fever,red eyes etc have many causes to rule our and need a wide group of blood tests urine tests and x- ray chest also.
I am sure your doctors will diagnose the cause of fever soon. Good luck
God bless
