Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Based on your description, your daughter appears to be suffering from Jaundice. Bilirubin levels, Liver function tests and an ultrasound abdomen to look for an enlarged spleen or any liver/gall bladder abnormality needs to be done. Hepatitis profile should also be obtained along with a peripheral smear. Treatment would depend upon the cause isolated as a result of the investigations.

Wishing you best of health
