She has nurofen given at 14:00 but her temperature now is 39,7
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 8 months ago.

Thanks for the details

You need to do cold sponging to her

You need to use Nurofen and calpol eavery 4 hourly alternatively

I feel she needs a course of antibiotic so you must visit the doctor if the fever stays the same in next day or so

Please do let me know if you have any other question
