Hello. I have understood your query. It looks like a vital fever only, there is no need of antibiotics unless there is a secondary bacterial infection. Continue giving her paracetamol medicine every 4 to 6 hourly. Let her take plenty of liquids. Do not force to eat, as during fever appetite will go down. Give her liquid foods such as kheer, kanji, soups, juices. U can also give her energy drink such as enerzal. Fever in viral infections last for 3 to 4 days. Do make a follow up visit to the doctor if fever persists
