Thank you for the query.
I would want to know the age and body weight of your daughter. As per the history provided by you, she is having high grade fever, alongwith chills and rigor, with some disorientation.
With these symptoms, I would advise you to consult your doctor/paediatrician as soon as possible. Your daughter is suffering from some infection (viral or bacterial) and the source needs to be localised (respiratory tract, urinary tract etc.). Wet cloth application and tepid sponging may provide symptomatic relief, but an antipyretic like paracetamol needs to be given (dose to adjusted as per her age and weight)
I would also advise you to get some blood investigations done like White blood cell count, Hb, ESR, electrolytes (sodium/potassium), C-reactive protein, which may give an idea about the type and severity of infection. If its a bacterial infection, antibiotics need to be started. Give your daughter plenty of fluid (she needs to be adequately hydrated during febrile episodes)
But as I have told you consult your physician as soon as possible for further advise.
Hope this helps you.

Hi. My 20month old developed a fever or 39 degrees 3 days ago at the nursery.. She also helped brush her teeth that morning. When I picked her up I noticed the gum aroound her upper front teeth were swollen and sore. That night I started her on Hibiotic .Yesterday night her left cheek was swollen and she still had a fever. She took her MMR shot at 14 months. What can this be?

Hi, I am a 28 years old healthy female. Around 9pm on Saturday night I started feeling nauseous and by 4am I was with a 102 degrees fever, headache, extreme body ache and joints pain. I woke up next day feeling the same and my husband took me to the doctor and they told me that I have just a flu. ???? The flu test was negative. Do you think it is a flu or something else??
