HI Doc

THank you for replying, firstly its my daughter not my son that is presenting these symptoms

I have taken her for a second opinion and they too can' t find anything wrong.

I was wondering, could allergies cause high fevers, green gunk coming out of the ears and streaming of the nose (which is also green now) and her eyes are also giving off green stuff now.

She also has no appetite really but she is drinking lots of fluids, water, milk, juice etc - I have been giving her lucozade too just to help get some form of something in her.

This is not due to an allergy. This is an infection. The most likely cause is an adenoid infection. The best person to see would be an ENT specialist.
