Brief Answer:
Take treatment,reevaluation by neurologist required if fever persists

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
The symptoms described with fever may be due to sinusitis or infection.
High grade fever and vomiting with eye pain occurs in dengue. But as the pain was for 20 days and fever recently the possibility of dengue is unlikely.
Another possibility may be cavernous sinus thrombosis if eye pain is associated with swelling.
For now treatment should contain pain killers.
Need of antibiotics should be evaluated and started.
Fever should be recorded 6 hourly.
Blood investigations may be planned if fever persists. Investigations like counts, dengue, malaria testing may be required.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further queries.
