Hi thanks for using HCM

You need to continue antibiotic for infection.
give paracetamol for fever maximum 4 times a day.
you can also do tapid sponging with Luke warm water to control fever.
do regular monitoring of temperature, if it goes high you may need to take her to hospital.
you can give steam inhalation to reduce sinus congestion.

Hope I have answered your query.
