Sounds like she suffers from poor circulation or cyanosis: blue, purple or black coloration of the skin caused by a lack of oxygen in the blood. This could be caused by lung problems or a host of other diseases and disorders including heart defects. You should definitely get her checked out by a doctor as soon as possible.
