Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your daughter's symptoms and it is suggestive of an infection.

The most likely cause of her infection could be viral fever or sinusitis.

It would take 5-7 days for her to get better.

In the meanwhile, the symptomatic treatment (as has already been started) should be continued.

A course of antibiotics may also be required if fever persists.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
Best wishes,
