  • It's definitely an infection somewhere try keeping her cool lots of fluids and try not to give too much medication for fever it will hurt her stomach .. Hope she feels better :)

  • Any other symptoms? My son had a low-grade fever for about a week once and turned out it was bronchittis. please let us know what the doc says. good luck

  • Keep in mind that it is spring. If she has any seasonal allergies, they can trigger a low grade fever that comes and goes. I get this every spring.
