Thank you for your query.

I can understand your concern. The correct place to measure the temperature is either mouth or side (axilla). Ear thermometers are not reliable.

You have done the right thing by giving ibuprofen which can be given every 6 hours in case the headache persists. It may take some hours before the unfolding of the cause of the problem occurs. You have not mentioned the exact place where the stomach hurts and the type of pain for me to give any guidance.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
