A high colored yellow urine is usually a result of poor feeding, reduced water intake and less urine output. In this situation, the urine gets concentrated and appears yellow. As you have observed she does not have jaundice, as eye color is ok. The medicines appear to be appropriate. If the fever does not settle, or if the eye color gets yellow, or if the stools appear white - please report back to your pediatrician
