Is swollen eye with fever, runny nose and cough in a child serious?

My baby woke up with a very swollen left eye. He had a fever last night, runny nose and cough and I gave him some advil(has had Advil before), it doesnt seem to hurt him and there is no bruising, but its practically shut. Should i be taking him to the emergency room?
