Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Shivering should be controlled once the fever comes down.

If she is still shivering cover her up with a blanket. This should control the shivering. Once shivering stops you can remove the blanket.

What is the age of your child? Is it 14 months or 14 years?

How long is your child having fever?
What are the associated complaints?

Please reply in detail so that I can help you better.
Take care.
