Pediatrician 's  Response
hi madam , your daughter most likely has upper respiratory tract infection which most of the time it's viral , and rapid heart beats is normal during fever unless if it's above 180 beat / minute .
because she is an infant I recommend seeing the pediatrician and do a physical exam because sometimes pneumonia can present with these symptoms and especially high grade fever , and physical exam is very helpful in the diagnosis.
I hope this is helpful
