Suggest treatment for vomiting and low grade fever in a child

My 3 year old was hit in the nose and knocked down by a door I was opening. 24 hours later she has a low grade fever and has thrown up once. No other signs/symptoms of concussion. Energy levels were normal until the fever and some nausea started. Speech is normal. No complaints of pain and no swelling anywhere. Should we go to a hospital or continue to monitor?

Dear friend hitting in the nose and getting knocked down always warrants a thorough check-up by a doctor.if the doc feels so ,he or she can go for a xray of nose area and C.T.Scan of brain to exclude bone injury or blood clot inside brain.any kind of injury or bleeding can cause local infection resulting fever.also you should know brain injury causes delayed complications.so you should go to hospital E.R instead of monitoring in home.take care.thank you.
