Hi Dear
welcome to the HCM,
High grade fever with nausea to be tackled initially as a viral fever.
Needs to be go for the tap water sponging vigrously when is required..
Paracetamol @ 15 mg/kd 4 to 6 hourly is suffienct to reduce the fever.
Contnue to givwe her plenty of liquids.
Post rainy season is season of insect borne disese like dengue. Should be taken care of accordingly.
Hope the query is answered.
thanks
