Hi Spazz, and welcome here.
I'm glad your symptoms have improved since you first posted here. I would consider a low-grade fever up to maybe 101F, a high fever over 102F. Redness and swelling indicates inflammation - with or without infection (and both can cause increased body temp).
Do keep a close eye on it as red, swollen areas of skin that spreads- especially with a fever - can be caused by things like cellulitis... though hopefully with your fiance being a nurse she would recognise those signs.
