In brief: Even

Even though most people will have a fever along with strep throat, it is definitely possible to have strep without a fever. That being said, there are a lot of other illnesses that can also cause a sore throat.
If you suspect that your daughter might have strep throat or if she has been exposed to it recently, take her to her doctor. They will be able to perform a throat swab and tell you whether she has it or not. Good luck!
