My daughter is 6 years old, she has got temperature

Resolved Question:

Hi,
My daughter is 6 years old, she has got temperature since last sunday, temperature between 37.5-38.5 under paracetamol and nurofen. I had brought her to see Gp at thursday, GP just said it is virus, the tempreature could last 3-5 days. The things worry me: first the fever last 6 days aready, second the temerature drops to normal below 37.0 when she sleeps every night. Is it virus or other thing, Do I need bring her to see docter again?

Hello
This is not a high temperature.
I would expect that a flu type virus could last a week to 10 days
Fever should be improving during this time.
There is no way to say this is something else, but if problems persist, then she need to see the doctor for a re examination and to have a urinalysis.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
