Pediatrician 's  Response
Most probably its a viral fever. Usually it takes a week for symptoms to resolve. Till then give paracetamol whenever fever. Children usually say headache when they have fever. As long as your child is active and taking orally well, shouldn't be a cause of concern.

Take care

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that she might have viral fever.
Within 2-3 days she will be alright.
Continue giving Tylenol as and when required.
Give plenty of water.
Give light diet.
If there is no respond then consult your doctor and go for investigations.
Ok and bye.
