Welcome to HCM,
Your daughter is having Throat infection which is initially viral in origin and it causes bodyache and fever it is reaction of body and do not worry about mild fever,already you have been prescribed paracetamol syrup which can help to reduce pain and fever. If fever is high you can do tepid sponging to bring temperature
Sometime antibiotics are given to prevent secondary bacterial infections.
Please remember body immunity( defence mechanisms) works better with mild temperature and it is not necessary to bring temperature to 98.4 degreeF.
Please do not worry it takes few days to fever to subside.
Take care.
Good Luck
