Please get her blood tested for malaria, typhoid or other viral illnesses, if any.

It is better to be on the safer side before serious complications or diseases arise.

You may fix an appointment at the pediatrician's office, get her evaluated on an OPD basis, and get these investigations done.

I hope she gets well soon.
