Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
She needs immediate Medical attention. Take her to a Pediatrician immediately. She may need Hospitalisation and started on antibiotics. Malaria or viral fever has to be ruled out through blood tests. She is losing body water due to high temperature which is making her thirsty. Give her plenty of fluids and do some tepid sponging.
Good Luck.
