Small child suffering from high fever due to small cuts, losing a tooth. On antibiotics. Treatment?

My child runs fevers every time she gets any open wound. No matter how small the cut, she runs moderate to high fevers. 102-103 temps every time. Her cuts always take much longer to heal. She has been given an aggressive antibiotic treatment and has been given an ointment to put on the cuts. The antibiotic didnt really do much for the issue. What can be causing her to run fevers every time she gets open cuts or even losing a tooth causes the fevers.

Thank you for your query
You should consult a pediatrician for this complaint. You need to rule out diabetes milletus which may cause such delayed healing and repeated infection. Also we need to rule out infective endocarditis or rheumatic heart disease. There can be other causes for these kind of complaints too but that will only be revealed only after blood tests. Hope that helps
God bless you
