Brief Answer:
Does she have any other symptoms?

Detailed Answer:
Hello, I'm Dr. Branch, thanks for using 'Ask a Doctor'. While technically this would not be considered a fever, which for children we would consider to be a temperature over 101 degrees, hopefully we could determine what the cause might be, as this is a higher temperature than what you would normally see. So if you could tell me more about the child, including how long she has had an elevated temperature, and whether she is having any other symptoms, that may help. In the meantime, if it seems that she is bothered by the elevated temperature, you can always give Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen according to her weight (if you want to give me her weight I can help with that as well).

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any other questions about that, and I would be glad to discuss it with you further.
