Hello Black fungus starts from sinuses. In early stages,it's difficult to comment by just evaluating an eye pic Though, this pic does not suggest black fungus but it's better to consult local ophthalmologist

By history and image that you shared, it is unlikely that your husband can get mucormycosis. Mucor usually occurs in patients who have uncontrolled diabetes, moderate to severe form of Covid in which high dose and long duration of steroids are given or patients who are hospitalized. For pain in eye and headache, you can give 1 tablet combiflam sos. In case the pain persists, do consult.
