Brief Answer:
This is not fever

Detailed Answer:
Hi
thanks for your query.


Have you checked the temperature with thermometer? Because it does not look like fever to me. Children often feel warm to touch and especially at night.

So unless she is having any other symptoms and having good activity, I would not worry too much.

Hope this helps.
Regards
