As long as she does not have a fever and does not complain about having a headache your daughter's sore neck is probably not serious,She probably has a sore neck from sleeping in a particular position.This can be very painful but usually only lasts for a day or two. Give your daughter Nurofen Junior syrup which will help for her pain and helps for inflammation.
