Child having mortin for low grade fever, appetite loss. Cranky, lethargic when wears off. Solution?

Hello, Our 3.8 year old daughter has had a low grade fever for approx 48 hours, body feels very warm, a bit listless and has no appetite . No other noticeable symptoms. I have been giving her Motrin every 6-7 hours which seems to wake her up a bit where she becomes more talkative and active. After it wears off she becomes cranky and lethargic. I appreciate your time. Thank you!
