Thank you for posting your query.

The most likely cause for your daughter's illness is viral fever. Sometimes, it may take a while before it resolves. Body pain and lack of appetite are part of this illness.

At the same time, if fever is not subsiding, it may be worthwhile investigating for other causes of fever, such as typhoid, etc.

For symptom relief, you can use paracetamol tablets round the clock (4 times a day). I am sure she would recover fast.

Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
