It's been going on since 3pm. She says it's making her throat burn and she feels coold.

I am encouraging her to take small sips of water, often. She is saying she really thirsty and wants a big drink. She doesn't look dehydrated i.e skin, fine and pingy.

She is asleep on the sofa where I can keep an eye on her. She is 5.

DS has just got over this. It sounds like she's already over the worst. If her throat's burning perhaps sucking an ice cube could help (DS has blackcurrant flavour ones!) as that will cool her down without drinking too much.

ah the poor thing. my dd, also 5, had something similar last week. sore throat, high temp, couldn't hold down water. ice cubes are a great idea - blackcurrant? lovely. turned out dd had an ear infection. hope yours gets better soon.

She is asleep atm and I don't want to wake her, but I will get some ice cubes ready incase she wakes.
