Hi,

Seems your daughter has been unlucky in suffering from two consecutive illnesses recently.
Small kids when not well are generally cranky and loose appetite.

In your daughter's case
*if the fever doesn't subside in 3 days post starting the medication .
*if she has starts breathing heavily with chest indrawing.
*if she is not feeding well and passing inadequate urine.
Then get her reassessed so that investigations and treatment tailored according to the findings.

Regards.
