Probably a virus. If she has no other symptoms and continues to act mostly normal (not lethargic or listless) and is eating and drinking fairly well... then just continue with Tylenol and Motrin. A fever itself is not dangerous.... it can't cause harm. If the fever continues to be over 101 for more than 5 days or she has other worrisome symptoms (not drinking, lethargic, or breathing problems) then see a doctor... otherwise assume it's a virus and it will run it's coarse.
