Hello the most common cause of fever in this age is viral infection. Give her paracetamol in a dose of 10-15 mg/kg/dose whenever the temperature rises. Monitor fever pattern and appearance of any new symptoms like cough/cold/loose motion/urinary difficulty. If you notice any of these and if fever persists for more than 72 hours consult your pediatrician for evaluation. Regards.
