hi, you haven't mentioned blood counts as ct report. As it looks a viral fever ? DENGUE FEVER. So you have to observe fever pattern with other symptoms. Just visit your physician and do a course of broad spectrum antibiotics with analgesic drugs. Get repeat blood counts after three days and decide further treatment according to her genral condition. Best wishes. Thanx.
