Child having fever. Given Tylenol. Diagnosed with impentago. Given antibiotics and cream. Any advice?

My son is 17 woke up with a fever of 103.5 gave him two doses of tylenol even though the fever broke I still kept his appointment with the dr for a persistant rash . he was diagnosed with impentago and given antibiotics and a cream. I am concerned because his fever is back at 103.1 and his eyes are red could something else be going on as well?

Thanks for writing to health care magic.
I can understand your concern.

Continue with Tylenol till you contact the doctor. Monitor for danger signs like poor feeding, vomiting, lethargy, etc.

Further investigations may be required if the child continues to have fever despite the antibiotic you are using.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
