Severe infection or leukemia would be the primary concerns, based upon the information that you have presented.

Your daughter should be referred to a Pediatric Infectious Diseases expert if her Pediatrician suspects infection, or to a Pediatric Hematologist/Oncologist if leukemia is suspected.

I hope that she will be well soon.
