Hi dear your daughter having fever for past 6 days and urine examination shows bacteria,don't worry your daughter is having urinary tract infection (UTI),should have a more detailed urine examination.Nothing to worry UTI is common in female,just give her a tablet of leofloxin 500mg or ofloxin 400mg daily for five days along with a tablet of paracetamol for control of fever, plus she should take plenty of water the UTI and fever will settle dawn in 4 to 5 days time.
