In brief: Fever

Having fever up to 103 for 5 days, she should have been seen by her pediatrician but now fever is gone & still not feeling good, crying for hrs & not eating, something is wrong probably an ear infection.
I still advise you to take her to her pediatrician even though the fever subsided. Make sure to keep her hydrated. I hope she gets better soon. Good luck.

In brief: No

needs to be evaluated, irritability would rather abate after fever goes down, better get her seen by her pediatrician
