6wk kit on 0.2ml 2xd, seems allergic - drool, mouth breathing, eyes swollen, etc. Withold dose until

I have a 6wk kitten that I got after the SPCA he was at had a fire. We were emergency fosters but have decided to adopt him. The fire was Monday. Wednesday morning I took him to my vet because he was coughing, and he was given an anti inflammatory injection to combat the irritation from the smoke inhalation. On Friday, he had an increasing amount of yellowish discharge from his eyes, and the vet put him on 0.2ml Clavamox, twice daily. He now has a great deal of watery discharge, not mucousy, with sneezing and breathing through his mouth. His eyes are red and half shut. I clean his eyes with a warm, damp cotton ball, and wipe the discharge away. This afternoon we had him in the bathroom with steam. He is eating wet developmental kitten food with KMR as a supplement. He defecates mostly solid and brown, and urinates little (or in terms of what I've seen). He's not coughing like he was, but the drooling, eye irritation and mouth breathing concern me - and the vet isn't back til AM.
