Hi family of 6 ! Ok ! Here what to do if fever and headace give here paracetamol. For abdominal pain give her dicyclomine. Need to change eating habbit eat more green fiber filled vegetable and drink more water and juice, less non veg meal. Don't rely completely on medicine she is just 6!. I hope she will be better after doing this. If she has mouth ulcer, try mouthwash and oral ulcer cream. Be healthy. Bye.
