Hi,

That depends on where you measured. Axillary temp above 99 can be taken as fever. If only fever, just give Acetaminophen for 2-3 days. This might be a viral illness which usually settles in 2-3 days. Otherwise, or if she develops additional symptoms, we can evaluate further.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
