Child has burning sensation under eye. Had fever, runny nose and vomiting. Reason?

My son was sent home from school because he vomited. He has a slight fever , accompanied by a slight redness on the skin underneath his right eye. He also has a stuffy/runny nose . After a long nap, his fever has reduced and he was able to keep down some chicken soup and saltine crackers. His only complaint now is that the skin under his eye burns, so I am applying a cool washrag to his eye. Any idea what could be the issue?

Thank you for your query.

The description provided by you suggests that your son may be developing a viral upper respiratory tract infection. You can continue giving him acetaminophen (Tylenol) if fever occurs and a decongestant for his stuffy nose. Viral URTI can take some time. In case the problems persist for the next 48-72 hours then you need to consult your doctor who shall examine your son and advise accordingly.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
