Hello there

she probably has a bacterial sinus infection that may be affecting her eyes. There are not too many home remedies short of keeping her fever under control (if any). Heat packs across the eyes and sinuses can help reduce the swelling and may help reduce the severety of the infection. I wish her well, Dr. Stevens
