Hi,

This suggests a systemic infection (fever, rash eye discharge), usually most are viral and need only supportive measures. But, as there is thick green discharge, this can be bacterial also, needing antibiotics, so kindly review with your doctor. Until then you gave give him Acetaminophen to control fever.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
