  • Probably an ear infection, sometimes it takes more than a day to clear.

  • Sometimes "mysterious" fevers in little girls can be urinary tract infections or bladder infections. The symptoms these carry sometimes are too difficult for little ones to describe. Does she take alot of baths or sit and play in her bath water for extended periods? Could just be the crud going around. My doctors rule of thumb is that if my kids are running a fever for 3 or more days she wants to see them. I would just give OTC meds to keep fever under control and wait a few more days. If not better, I would call Dr. again. Good Luck to you and ur little one!
