Thanks for posting your query to Healthcaremagic.

See your daughter is having a throat infection which might have spread to her ear also. She has not been given any antibiotics thinking that it might be a viral infection . But if it was a viral infection it should have come down by now .

I advise you to give Paracetamol syrup for 2 days and if there is no improvement or if fever starts again she needs an antibiotic course . In that case you need to consult your doctor again .

Also do salt water gargling, drink hot water, Avoid Non veg and oily food . Avoid Citrus Fruits.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarifications feel free to ask .
