Not virus: A virus does not last a month. There is a bacterial infection that you can get in the stomach called H pylori. This infection can cause symptoms like that. I would recommend going to a pediatric gastroenterologist. Good health.

Call PCP: Your child's been sick for a month and you still have not called your Primary Care Physician? Please call now. Your daughter will have to be examined to be diagnosed and treatment planned.

Unlikely virus: One month of abdominal symptoms is a little longer than one would expect from a virus alone. Abdominal discomfort can be from a lot of causes like constipation, stomach infection with H. Pylori, acid reflux, irritable bowel, celiac disease, or IBD. Try her on a natural organic diet rich in fiber and fluids. Also try probiotics. If not helping in a few days, see a specialist.
