Pediatrician 's  Response
check if there is some redness in the eyes. conjunctivitis can cause some sort of photophobia (sensitivity to light). if there is, she will need to be seen by an ophthalmologist. otherwise her symptoms should improve as fever comes down. but if you feel there is worsening of sensitivity, she ll need to see ophthalmologist soon.
