Hi, thanks for the query.

Since he had bleeding , there must be haematoma ( clot blood ) in sinuses which may cause fever. Other reason CSF leak , Upper respiratory track infection , etc.

I will suggest you to please consult your ENT doctor because here clinical examination is very important to diagnose the real fact and accordingly treatment may be planed.

Hope above information helpful to you .
