What causes recurrent fever and puffy eyes in an infant?

I am currently breastfeeding my 5 month old baby. I have had an abscess tooth aND took a amox from family Doc. Finished script n didn t go away. Pain has been for 3+ weeks. I just got stronger antibiotic from dentist today. For the past 3 days my baby has had fevers off and on n when she woke up today her eye was puffy aND had a small amount of discharge in it. She is a little congested and I m fairly positive she is teething. Could her symptoms be related and should I worry? She is only breast fed since birth and has been recently eating baby cereal with baby food bananas or applesauce stage one mixed in it. Her appetite is same and she is wetting her diapers as normal

Hello,

Consult a pediatrician and get evaluated.

We have to rule out possible causes like nephritis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
