What about her temperature levels is this normal

Thank you.

It sounds as if she has been treated with appropriate antibiotics.

However, the temperature readings do seem rather low on occasion and this can happen when the infection is still active (just as the temperature can go high with a fever too). If she is still feeling very poorly with dizziness, headache, poor appetite etc. then I think it would be perfectly justified to seek a further review with her GP (ask for an urgent/same-day appointment).
