    Once you have the high fever, your immune system will be decreased. Your eyes will be red because of the interlinked effect from the whole body. However, your eyes may feel dry. What's worse, it may cause the bloodshot eyes. Thus, once you find that you get the high fever, you'd better go to the hospital to have a treatment.
