Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Your child seems having viral fever.

You can continue the medication as prescribed by the Pediatrician.

Give plenty of oral fluids, coconut water, and soft diet to maintain hydration and nutrition.

Provide proper rest.

Basic investigations like CBP, CUE, Malarial parasite can be done after consulting your Pediatrician.

Carry all the required medication in the journey and maintain her hydration through out the journey by giving plenty of oral fluids.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.

Pediatrician Dr. Synthyia Bhagat's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Your daughter is having symptoms of respiratory infection which could be viral or bacterial in nature.
After medication it takes few days for fever to settle
If fever is still there and cough persist, I suggest you to get her reevaluated by doctor for further management.
Relax it is not tuberculosis.
Monitor her temperature every 6 hourly.
Give her plenty of fluids and soft bland diet.
Give steam inhalation for 5 to 10 minutes.

Wishing your child good health.
God bless..
