Your 3yr old is most probably having viral fever.See to it that she is kept well hydrated and eats at regular intervals .Can give her some multivitamins with probiotic.If her fever doesnot subide in a couple of days she will need to be evaluated by her pediatrician .

Pediatrician Dr. Synthyia Bhagat's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Your child is having fever for 3 days with pain abdomen and loss of appetite.
It is mostly viral in nature,but needs to be evaluated.
I suggest you to get her examined by pediatrician for proper management.
In the meantime record temperature every 6 hourly and give acetaminophen as per dosage if fever is more than 100F.
Maintain proper hydration,give plenty of fluids,glucose water,fruit juices,vegetable soup.
Do not force her to eat give fluids only till her appetite returns.

Wishing your child good health.
God bless.
