Hello Amy and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice. I am really concerned that your child is suffering from fever. Fever with conjunctivitis
occurs with viral infections like adenovirus. Its always better to take your child to hospital as kids deteriorate very fast.
If doctor feels that eye infection
is due to bacteria he might add antibiotics.
Till then keep giving him adequate fluids, and antipyretics. Paracetamol
is recommended than mefenemic acid for fever.
Remember the danger signs like not feeding well, vomiting
multiple episodes, seizures, drowsiness
where you need to take your child immediately to emergency.
Don't worry. He will be alright. Take care.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
