My 3 year old has had a croup type cough and fever for 8 days. Kindly suggest

Hi, my 3 year old has had a croup type cough and fever for 8 days now. We have given him paracetamol regularly and he hasn t seemed lethargic or really Ill so I haven t taken him to see a doctor . He has also had an eczema type rash around his left eye and is now complaining of pains in his temple on the left side by his eye. I m getting a little worried that this is something more than a virus? Can you advise?
