Hi welcome to H.C.M.Forum. your daughter had fever and relieved by zinnat syp. she dont need any tests now . but if you want to know the general health condition of the baby you can get the tests done.
they are TC, DC, ESR, AEC, QBC, WIDAL, HB, PLATELET COUNT. ect. but under the supervision of a doctor.
besides you give her cereals, grean leafy vegetables, fruits,and juices to boost up immunity. dont worry she will be fine.

hi welcome to hcm.see for fever why you give such a strong syp simple paracetamol sus is enough for her.since she had these complaints since 4days and before that had cold and cough so blood test gives you proper idea about which kind of fever she had? blood test like CBC,MP,S.WIDAL,URINE ROUTINE MICRO.
BUT before that once pediatric doc opinion for physical examination is necessary.
