Thanks for coming to HCM.

From the description and results of blood test given, it seems she is suffering most probably from a viral infection. I would request to liaise with your doctor to discuss the blood test results. It doesn't seem to be too abnormal from the blood results.

Paracetamol is a very good anti-fever medicines, please continue giving it as per the instructions from your doctor.

There is no specific treatment for viral infection. Usually, it takes anything between 5-7 days for complete recovery. If any further symptoms appear or the fever is not responding with paracetamol, considering her age - you may need to visit your doctor again.

You need to make sure she gets enough food/fluids and having adequate wet nappies.
