good evening, the fever keeps fluctuating between the time for the medicines. this being the 3rd day of such high fever and the medicines are taking time to show their actions , i would suggest u to to go for some blood tests- complete blood counts, smear for malaria and a urine routine test. since this is the prime season dengue fever in most parts i will stress upon getting her blood test done , seeing the reports which we can decide upon further course of action. kindly review with ur doctor. watch for rashes, severe joint pains, decreased activity, bleeding tendencies, etc which are the few symptoms of dengue fever.
