Thank you for your query.

Sorry for the delay in responding to your query. I hope by now your daughter must have settled down as predicted by the treating doctor.

It is not unusual for individuals to have cold feet and hands even with fever. Once the body temperature stablizes the peripheries become warm.

To control the vomiting you can given your daughter syp. ondansetron 2.5 ml. three times a day for a day or two.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter all the best.
