Small child, high fever, stress ulcers in mouth, bleeding gums after hair braiding. Cure?

My daughter is aged 3 years and had a high fever for three days following the braiding of her hair last Saturday. We have since cut the braids but suddenly has lost her appetite & has stress ulcers in her mouth. Furthermore, she s been bleeding from her gums since last night & continues to cry non-stop at night. She s been on paracet but it s not helping at all.

For fever either paracetamol or brufen will do along with warm water sponge baths every now and then. for bleeding gums and excessive crying, kindly get a doctor examine yr child to rule out any major disease. the child may require a few lab tests b4 coming to any conclusions.
