Hi,
Thank you for your query,
Your daughter looks like having a Viral fever.
You can give Tylenol or advil in prescribed dosage every 8 th hourly depending on the presence of fever.
Do tepid sponging with lukewarm water if the fever is high.
Give plenty of oral fluids to maintain hydration.
Consult your Pediatrician for the assessment of your daughter and for the specific treatment.
Hope I have answered your query.
