Dear Deepak, hello.
Your daughter must be having viral fever with symptoms of cold, cough and fever.
No aggressive management is needed.Symptomatic treatment will give relief. Antibiotics are needed in case of secondary infection only, otherwise antihistaminic and antipyretic will solve the purpose.
It is advisable to get your daughter investigated if fever persists.
I hope this is of help to you.
Thanks and take care.
