  • Not sure what your question is. If you are not sure what to give her I would go to the local pharmacy and tell them her symtons. They will be able to tell you what she can take. AS far as not eating, it is really more important that she drink fluids so make sure she is drinking enough water or juice.

    Good Luck!

  • My Son had the same symptoms during Christmas. Not really sick but it came & went & his breath was bad. I took a flashlight & no redness in his throat but his sinuses were red. It ran it's course without meds in about a week & a half. His fever never went over 99. He's 4.

  • I know this post is pretty old....but since I found it while looking for answers..I'm sure someone else will too. So, here is my two cents worth:
    I would talk to a doctor just in case. Until then, I wouldn't do any meds for the fever unless she's extremely uncomfortable - fevers are good things, that's how our bodies fight infection and build antibodies to whatever we get though. If you lower the fever, you lower one of the best defenses against those nasty bugs. :-)
