Normally viral fever lasts for 3 to 5 days only and so you must take your daughter to your doctor for examination and investigations,since it is already six days of fever.
There are chances that she may be suffering from some bacterial infection for which a proper anti biotic course would be required.
Till you consult your doctor,give only paracetamol.
Best of luck
