Welcome to HCM,
It seems that your daughter might have viral infection.
Wait till morning and continue medicine for fever as and when required.
Give her plenty of water to help her fever controlled and prevent from dehydration.
Tomorrow she might require for blood check up to find out the cause of having fever.
Ok and bye.
