From your query, what you need is know is not clear. You have not mentioned the age or weight of your child too.

Fever with abdominal pain and vomiting, can well be a virus as your doctor says.
Give her Acetaminophen in a dose of 15mg/kg/dose repeated every 6 hrs for fever.
For vomiting, domperidone syrup will help her.
Give her plenty of fluids such as juice/ milk/ soups/ porridge etc.

If her food intake is poor/ activity is poor/ fever does not subside, do visit your doctor again.
Wish your daughter a speedy recovery.
