Your daughter is having recurring episodes of fever inspite of getting paracetamol..then it is necessary to consult to physician to get her have not told whether she is having any other symptoms along with fever like cough, breathlessness, running nose, diarrohea or vommitting..
If yes then definitely she needs a course of antibiotics which will take care of underlying infection and fever will subside down....
