Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi dear,
She probably has a viral fever. Try giving her tylenol if there is fever and good amount of bed rest. Usually viral fevers subside by two to three days. At present her oral intake is reasonably fine. Keep hydrating her well. If she doesnt become well or things worsen like vomiting, drowsiness its always better to take her to a pediatrician.

Take care
