Brief Answer:
Kindly check her temperature by thermometer

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to the HCM

I understand your concerns but don't worry. Kindly check her axillary temperature by a clinical thermometer. In case it's higher than 100 degrees Fahrenheit which suggests fever, you may give her Syp. Acetaminophen. Repeat the dose at 6-8 hours interval if fever persists.

Most of the fevers in this age group are due to self limiting viral illnesses. They usually improve over a days with only symptomatic management.

In case, your child seems to have any other symptoms, do contact us.

Hopefully this will help you.
Take care

Brief Answer:
Most likely due to environmental temperature

Detailed Answer:
Don't worry. If the body temperature is 98 degrees Fahrenheit, then you should not be worried about just warm hands and feet. It's perfectly normal in warm environment. Just keep her well hydrated.
