Hi Preeti ,
Thanks for placing your query here.
I can appreciate your concerns about your daughter.
Have patience and faith in your doctor.
In view of prolonged fever with recurrence , normal x ray chest, no response to cepodem , it is a good idea to stop all medicines for next 72 hrs & monitor her body temperature.
After that she should have blood culture,urine routine & culture, CBC,CRP & Typhidot test as a minimum.
Future course of action will depend upon what are the results of tests .
Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Wish her good health.
