Normal to not eat: It is normal to not want to eat when you are ill. As long as she is keeping hydrated...Meaning she urinated at least 3 x in 24 hours, then just treat her symptoms. If the fever is not trending down after 48 hours, i would recommend that she be seen by a physician for an evaluation.
