Your daughter had elevated bilirubin and liver enzymes which have now normalised. Also you have been informed by your doctors that her liver is fine. By this description it seems that your daughter had viral hepatitis. It is a self limiting, usually mild illness in children.

Her episodes of sweating seem to be unrelated to this illness. Try decreasing the temperature of her room at night for a few days. If excessive sweating persists even after a week or so, please get back to me with any other problems she has and her exact laboratory reports of liver tests and the treatment she received. At present I don't think you need to worry about it.

Hope that helps.
Wishing you good luck.
