Child suffering from fever for last 10 days


Q: Hello Doctors,
My 7 years old daughter has been suffering from recurrent high fever from last 10 days. Temperature ranges between 100 to 103.
I consulted with doctors of my town but their medicines are not giving the result and the situation is intact.
Doctors suggested tests for Malaria, typhoid. But, report is normal.
Blood test report is as below -
Investigation Finding Normal value
WBC 4200 4000 - 10000
D.C. of WBC
Neutrophils 49% 60 - 70
Lymphocytes 48% 20 - 35
Eosinophils 2% 0 - 6
Monocytes 1% 0 - 4
Basophils 0% 0 - 1

RBC 3.39 million 3.8 - 6.0
PLT 236000 1.5 - 4.5
Heamoglobin 8.6 g/dl (59%) 10 - 16
HCT 28.7% 37.0 - 54.0
MCV 84.6 um 80 - 100
MCH 25.3 pg 27 - 33
MCHC 29.8 g/dl 31 - 36
E.S.R 55 mm 0 - 15

She was already thin.. but has gone weaker in these 10 days. Fever is coming in 12 -14 hours.
10 days back she had icecream, and we thought its because of that. But, even after 10 days high fever is worrying us a lot.

Could you please suggest what might be the issue? And what should be our course of action for the treatment?

I will be very thankful to you for your quick response.
