Pediatrician 's  Response
You should get a urine routine and culture examination done for your daughter to rule out presence of urinary tract infection. If its there, get sensitive antibiotic to cure it and if urine examination is normal, get a Mantoux test done on her to screen for Tubercular infection. If both are negative, do talk to your pediatrician but don't ignore the low-grade fever. Good luck.
