Thanks for your query.

Virus infection can present in varied forms and the infection can last for 5-7 days and, at times, for longer periods. If the doctors feel that it is due to virus then they would have run some investigations.

The symptoms that you mention are very unlikely due to puberty.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back in case you need any clarifications or would like to share more facts of the case.

Wishing your daughter all the best.
