Brief Answer:
may be viral infection.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
It may be viral infection.
It can take 5 to 7 days for fever to settle down. You can give paracetamol every 5 to 6 hourly for fever.
If she is playful, eating well, hydration is good then need not to worry.
Abdominal pain needs examination by doctor, as diagnosis depends on which area of her abdomen is having pain, is there burning micturation, loose motions, burning sensation in chest, whether abdomen is soft or hard and tender to touch?
Many times childrens say that there is pain in abdomen when there is fever, it might referred pain from some other area, or it might not be significant.
Hope I helped you.
