Management: Please provide fever control with Ibuprofen for children every 6 hours and/or Tylenol for children every 4 hours. The two medications may be used in combination if necessary to control her fever. Her symptoms may be related to a flu infection, COVID-19 or Strep for example and she should be evaluated. Provide fluids to prevent dehydration.
