Eye irritation & burning sensation is common during fevers. If he has taken cold or cough medication, this eye symptoms can become more severe. Try simple remedies such as washing the closed eyes with cold ( not chilled ) water, making sure the child takes plenty of drinking water (or juice) to prevent dehydration, and so on. Try these tips and if there is no improvement, post your query again to me.
