5 year old fever for 5 days

My 5 year old daughter has had temps up to 39.7 since Friday and even with panadol and nurofen it never drops to below 38.. I took her to the doctor on friday and he said it was just the flu but did urine tests anyway which all came back clear.. She has a blocked nose and a bit of a cough but other then that all she wants to do is sleep... I am going to take her back to the doc tomorrow if her fever doesn't break coz 6 days of high fevers doesn't seem normal to me.... should i be worried?
