User avatar Hello,
This is probably a viral infection and children get these frequently. You should monitor her temperature and be sure she is getting enough fluids. If there is something more going on your doctor will discover it on examination. She is developing her immune system now and you will probably see this off and on over the next few years in one form or another.

She can have acetaminophen for pain as directed.

Best wishes.
