Hi

Thanks for writing to us.

Your daughter is having fever with cold which is mostly viral in nature and settles in dew days.
-I suggest you to record her fever 4 to 6 hourly and in case fever is more than 100 F give paracetamol as per dosage (15 mg/kg).
-You can give levocetrizine 2.5 ml once a day at bed time.
-Give plenty of fluids, warm water with honey and lemon juice will be soothing.
-Give soft bland diet so as to maintain hydration and nutrition.
-Give steam inhalation for 5 to 10 min.

In case symptoms persist get her examined by pediatrician.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any further question I would be glad to help.
Wishing your baby good health.
God bless!!
