Need medication for fever of about 102 -103 & diarrhea

my 7 year old daughter is running a fever ranging of 102-103 and complaining that her stomach hurts. She is not throwing up or does not have diahrrea and she does not have an appetite. Is that the stomach flu and if so, how long does the fever last?

Hello your child might be suffering from mesenteric lymphadenitis, it will go off on its own and you can give a course of antibiotic, paracetamol for pain and do an USG if possible to confirm the diagnosis and to rule out transient intussusception :)
