Persisting high fever, redness in eyes with green pus in the corners. Taken Ponstan. Is it conjunctivitis?

My 14 month old has a temp of 39.5 deg. I gave him 5mls of Ponstan @ 14:00, it is now 15:35 and his temp is @ 39.2 !! He has red eyes with some green pus in the corners? IS this conjunctivitus and is this the reason he might have a temp? Should I take him to the hospital. About 2 weeks ago he finished a 5 day course on Antibiotics!

Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi amy,
I am really concerned that your child is suffering from fever. Fever with conjunctivitis occurs with viral infections like adenovirus. Its always better to take your child to hospital as kids deteriorate very fast.
If doctor feels that eye infection is due to bacteria he might add antibiotics.
Till then keep giving him adequate fluids, and antipyretics. Paracetamol is recommended than mefenemic acid for fever.
Remember the danger signs like not feeding well, vomiting multiple episodes, seizures, drowsiness where you need to take your child immediately to emergency.

Don't worry. He will be alright. Take care.
