ER doc is probably: Correct. For the past three..What? Days, weeks, hours? As an er doc myself, i'd have to look at him before i could make any further judgment. If you are concerned, return to the er for further evaluation.

Workup/mgt: If there is a high fever of 103 with swollen discolored eyelids, I would also consider a work up for bacterial causes and treatment for the same. Please keep him well hydrated, ensure that his vaccinations are up to date, and that he has no neck stiffness.
