This fever is looking like Viral illness as the fever was high grade with swollen face and lips and peeling of lips. But as the fever is more than 2 weeks evaluation whould be done with basic investigationl like CBP,CUE,Malarial parasite,Widal test,ESR,Viral serology like Dengue serology and Coagulation profile as there is bleeding. So consult your Pediatrician for further investigation and management accordingly.
