Brief Answer:
Require investigation.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I appreciate your concern about your grand daughter.

You have not mentioned when did you start giving antibiotics.
After starting antibiotics, it will take 2-3 days to subside symptoms.

If you are giving since last 5 days, now you need to visit doctor.
To investigate her by doing blood tests, complete urine tests and other related tests like X-ray.
To change the antibiotics and other medication as per her diagnosis.

Meantime here I am giving a suggestion to reduce temperature.
Please keep doing sponge your grand daughter's body (especially limbs, underarms, back, abdomen) with washcloth which is soaked in lukewarm water.

Keep recording temperature values, it will help you and your doctor to know the health condition of child.


Hope I have answered your question.
If you have any questions I will be happy to help you.
Thank you.
