Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Your daughter is suffering from a viral illness which presented as cough, conjuctivitis.

For fever you can give paracetamol in prescribed dosage.

Clean her eyes with a soft, clean and wet cloth with using sterile water.

For your son hives, you can apply a calamine containing lotion externally over skin for soothing effect.

If there is itching, you can give an oral antihistamine like cetirizine or hydroxyzine in prescribed dose.

And I advise you to consult the Pediatrician for the examination of your children and for the prescription of specific medication.

Hope I have answered your query.
