Has she any other symptoms? If she hasn't wet her diaper she may be dehydrated so give her pedialyte. fever is often fighting off infection..I think with the fever continuing you should take her to see the doctor.At nine months I expect she is teething sometimes they are unwell . Let us know how she is doing ..

My opinion is that you take her back to the doctor to find out more , I agree a high temp is worrying ,they do get them with teething..though.let us know how she is doing ..
