hi,
welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
it may be viral fever or due to any other infection
you have to consult a pediatrics physician and get evaluated. without detail history and examination its difficult to give diagnosis
do all the investigations as required by the doctor
after fever subside give her good diet like milk, egg, fruits etc
take good amount of water
take care
