Thanks for writing to health care magic.

This fever could be because of the primary problem your child is having or because of a some other etiology.

If the fever persists we should investigate her further depending on the examination findings.

Are there any other associated complaints now?
Does she have any new complaints like rapid breathing or burning urination or increased frequency of urination or sore throat etc?

Please reply in detail so that we can help you better.
Take care.
