  • The fever should not be coming back. The fact that it is tells me she needs stronger medication. Call the doctor,he can call the pharmacy and prescribe something else.

  • An infection may take a week to ten days to go away. However the pain and fever should be gone in a couple of days. Call your doctor, and see if he want's to give her something else, or wants to see her again. If the infection is viral, those antibiotics won't do a thing.
