Pediatrician 's  Response

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

First if the temperature remains in a range of 98.6 degree + or - 0.9 degree then we do not consider that as fever.

So continue monitoring the temperature.

Does she have any other problems like cough, cold, burning urination, increased frequency of urination etc?

Is she active and playful?
Please reply in detail.
Take care.

Hi dear,
Five days of fever needs to be evaluated. Blood tests, urine tests might be needed. Based on that if needed antibiotics can be prescribed by your doctor. So seeing a pediatrician is advised at this stage. Till then keep giving her adequate fluids for hydration.
Take care. Don't worry she will be fine.
