Hello.  She can use bhringarajasav and antitrust 1spoon each with equal water thrice daily after food.  These are available at Ayurveda stores.  They reduce fever and improve the immunity as well.

Hello There. I can understand your concern. she is on treatment of tuberculosis and she will have to continue it as long as prescribed by the physician. and the fever will also come down gradually. additionally you can take a paracetamol 500 mg twice or thrice a day as needed to control the temperature. give her lots of water and a high protein diet as well. best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.
