5 year old child, recurring mild fever, cough with mucus. Test for strep negative. Treatment?

My 5 y ear old daughter has had a fever since Monday night at 9pm - it goes down a bit ( 99/100) with meds and she will start to feel a bit better but comes back - it is Thursday so I was worried what is too long to continue with a fever? We took her to the Dr on Tuesday and he tested for strep and it was negative. She has a small mucas cough with the fever - not a real bad one but it is there.

Hi, Thanks for query.
It seems that she might be having respiratory infection.
Go for Complete Blood check up to find out the nature of infection.
There is also possibility of Typhoid.
Now as 7-8 days are passed she may go for Widal test to rule out typhoid.
Take light diet.
Plenty of liquids.
After all reports go for treatment accordingly.
Ok and bye.
