Frequent high grade fever without definit localisation symptoms like cough, coryza, altered stool are mostly due to viral infections. Another important cause specially in female child can be due to uti. The typical symptoms of uti like burning sensation and increased frequency can be absent in children. Please perform urine culture and sensitivity test done next time she develops fever and before starting antibiotic therapy.

Dear lybrate-user. When does fever start. And chills or rigor. Get mp_qbc and widal test done. And also cbc. If it's of viral origin it will resolve within a week. Get cold sponging and take bath. You will feel better.
