Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Viral fevers usually last for 5 to 7 days.

What about her general condition like her intake of food and activity?

Continue the medication as per the advise.

Try to give plenty of oral fluids and soft diet to maintain her hydration and nutrition.

Consult the pediatrician for follow up to examine for any concerned findings and to investigate with appropriate tests if required depending on his examination.

Hope I have answered your query.
