Brief Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCM

Detailed Answer:
Well, you dont have to be worried about 102, this is still not worrying fever and you should continue with z-pac as it may take even 2-3 days to have effect. Also, advice her to drink plenty of fluids,at least 2.5 liters per day, vitamin c supplements, drink lettuce tea with lemon and honey, cool down head and neck and take lukewarm baths. If fever reaches 103.5 then you should go back to your doctor. Wish you good health. Regards
