Hi. Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Your daughter is having high grade fever. Medications at home will give you symptomatic relief and since the fever is not controlled please take her to a doctor to run few tests so as to determine if the fever is due to some infection. the cause is needed to be treated.
Take care
