Brief Answer:
give her paracetamol

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
I would suggest you to give her paracetamol.
Paracetamol is the safest antipyretic in children.
If fever is high as in your case you can give combination of paracetamol with brufen like syp. ibugesic plus.
Now you can do 2 things to bring tempreture down-
1. cold sponging.
2. give paeracetamol.
Hope i helped you.
