High temperature, redness under eye. Is it serious?

My 2 1/2 year old recently had a few days of a high temperature which is now under control, but yesterday and today we noticed a light red color around his eyes... under his eyes and on his eye lids. He doesn t seem to be bothered by it, but I wasn t sure if it was anything serious enough to call his pediatrician about

Dear user
High temperature associated with red coloured rash under the eyes, may be because of local conditions like impetigo, cellulitis or it can be because of systemic infections which present with fever and rashes like measles...
I think high temperature and rash or red coloured lesion below the eye needs evaluation and treatment. Kindly visit your pediatrician for appropriate treatment.
