Suggest treatment for fever and headache

My 6 yr old granddaughter has a headache and she said a sore throat earlier . She had 101 today then at midnight woke up fever 103 and said her head hurt and felt dizzy when she got up but went away by the time she got to my room. She hasnt said her throat hurt anymore. I looked earlier her tonsils were a little swollen no redness or white spots i gave tylenol at midnight and she went back to sleep

Hello,

Tylenol may help control her symptoms till morning. If symptoms persist in the morning, you see the doctor for examination and tests. Treatment will depend on the exact cause. Possible causes may include bacteria, viral infections or parasitic infections like malaria if in a malaria zone.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
