Fever & vomiting: She might just be tired and weak from vomiting (one loses a lot of energy from it) and not because she is dehydrated.

My daughter been sick since Sunday she was vomiting, coughing, hievefer until today is Thursday. Our Doctor did not gave her antibiotic only for fever?
Viral Illness: It sounds like you doctor diagnosed a viral illness? Antibiotics are not indicated or useful in treating viruses. The only medications for viral illness are those that are used to treat the symptoms (such as tylenol (acetaminophen) if she is uncomfortable from the fever). If her fever is continuing or she is having new symptoms, I would recommend that she be reevaluated to rule out secondary infection. ...Read more

My 5 year old daughter has rapid breathing, fever cough and vomiting. Is it normal for her to be breathing rapid shallow breaths with a fever?
Yes: It sounds like your daughter has a viral infection. Rapid breathing is common with fevers- as long as she's not short of breath or wheezing much this is likely not serious. You could give tylenol (acetaminophen) for the fever, but fever is how the body fights infection so if she is not in pain & the fever's below 104 might let it run its course. Important to keep her hydrated so please give fluids. See my comment:. ...Read more
