Hi,
As a pediatrician, it sounds like a case of significant FLU like illness.
You should get her evaluated once more however to make sure that the throat is not bad, and a repeat test for strep is not needed,
Sometimes blood tests may be ordered as per the clinical exmaination too,
In the meantime taking ADVIL/ TYLENOL and light diet may help,
