Paediatrician

You mention that your baby has a high fever and also diarrhoea. It is very possible that she has developed a gastric infection which may be due to bacteria such as Salmonella. You have already seen a doctor and she is still ill. My advice would be to take her to the after hours paediatric clinic at your nearest hospital so that she can be properly examined and her stools tested. She may require admission to the hospital for treatment.
