Brief Answer:
she needs to be clinically examined at first...

Detailed Answer:
Hello Nxxxxxxxxxxxxy, Welcome back,
I've gone through your query and understand your concerns for your daughter,

Well, the fever needs to be recorded to see how high it's spiking... And just check her oral cavity for any redness/swelling around the molar teeth region (it can be a source also)...the leg pain may or may not be associated with it...

Is there any rash/itching/joint pain anywhere over the body?

Any other symptoms like cough/cold/pain in the ear/stuffy nose etc?

In my opinion, it's better to take her any nearby healthcare facility/Pediatrician for a thorough clinical check-up at first...the relevant blood tests can then be planned as per the findings...Since UTI has been ruled out as you've mentioned, other sources need to be looked at...

You can continue the Crocin in the meanwhile...

Let me know if I can assist you further...

Take Care
Kind Regards
