Pediatrician 's  Response

She might be having some soft tissue injury that causes pain and discomfort.
Try to give her pain killers like Ibuprofen according to her weight. Dose is 7.5 mg/ kg/ dose, repeated every 8 hrs.

If pain persists/ has difficulty in moving the neck, you may see your doctors again.

Wish your little one a speedy recovery.
