Likely Basal cell Ca: You have most likely basal cell carcinoma locally invasive , do not spread like melanoma squamous cell ca probably localized to skin only other wise you might have surgical excision. With this presumption don't worry it will heal.

I respectfully disagree with part of this answer. It probably is basal cell, but multiple recurrences in a very sensitive area are very problematic. Most surgeons have little or no experience with eyelid surgery and there is a fine line between moving enough and creating a serious disability in this area. Moh's has been shown to decrease recurrence, but not eliminate it. Depending on what has already been done - this could require a significant excision and complex reconstruction.

Specialist: This is a very serious problem! you need to be seen at a center that specializes in this. You may need a surgical oncologist, moh's surgeon, and plastic surgeon that thoroughly knowledgable in this area. There are several excellent facilities in the boston area - for example mass eye and ear.

Multi-layer dressing: Use sterile dressing and antibiotic ointment over the exposed skin to prevent infection and promote healing. Use a second layer of dressing or gauze. In between the first and second layer apply a lubricant such as vaseline or petroleum jelly. Secure those layers with a roll gauze and tape. All of this goes under your sock and should prevent pain when walking.

No meds: Medications have not been proven successful at this age and pediatricians do not recommend any over the counter cough and cold medicines for kids under 6 years. For babies of this age a nasal aspirator can help remove the thick mucus in their noses- the blue bulb syringe can do the same. Humidification may also help. Most importantly keep them hydrated- increase the frequency of breastfeeding.

Sounds like viral: Although, it does sound like a viral infection, 3 days of fever is the most concerning factor. Vomiting in the 3 year old is not good either as it may cause dehydration along with fever. I'd take him to the nearest er for a check up.

Need eval: If symptoms are on one side with weight loss - need immediate evaluation to rule out growth either i'n lungs or neck area. Better to make sure this is not cancerous.

See an allergist: The symptoms you describe sound like allergies (except for the rapid heart beat). An allergist can teat you to determine what specific allergy you have. Additionally, you should have your primary care doctor evaluate your racing heart. In fact, this should be dealt with before the allergies are checked.
