Don't worry. These symptoms are common and you are on the right track. Any infection will cause fever and usually the symptoms are aggressive during the initial 1 week.
In concern with the eyes, if it swollen with redness ,irritation and watery discharge then please don't wait for home remedies. Consult your near by eye doctor to assess the condition and the needed medications.
If it is only swelling of eyes, you can give her cold compresses with a dose of cetrizine syrup 2.5ml twice a day for three days and a lubricant eye drops 4 times a day. She will be fine once the fever comes down.

When taking antibiotics your appetite goes down and a metallic taste stays in your mouth. Give her plenty of fluids like water,juices,soups as a split diet every two hrs interval.
She will be fine soon. Take care.

please get a cbc , kidney/liver function test, blood/urine culture senstivity for ur daughter...chest Xray find out the cause of fever...generlly it may only be a viral infection which will subside on its own , hoping ur daughter has recieved all the routine immunisation doses...jus give her paracetamol, some cough syrup, plenty of oral fluids and a good diet...
the eye can be swollen either due to antibotic reaction(unlikely since it manifests on the whole body), or due to viral infection itself...wash frequently with water and put some antibiotic eye drops to prevent secondary infection...
hope ur daughter gets well soon..
