My 5 year old boy has been running fever, and has been coughing. His eyes have also been itching and burning and matting up. What could be wrong?

In brief: Viral infection

It sounds like your son has a viral infection.
Such infections might take up to 2 weeks to clear up, but can be more serious: high fevers, difficulty breathing, and any changes in behavior, especially severe fatigue, could be signs of something more serious. It is always a good idea to see your pediatrician for more answers.
