Child had flu. Now white bumps on lip. Other bumps on body. Due to fever?

my 10 year old daughter was diagnosed with a mild case of the flu this past monday and now has 3 small whitish bumps on her lower lip . i have no idea what these are and she has never had them before. about a month or so ago though, she had around 11 red bumps on various parts of her body, (back, leg, stomach ) that i thought were perhaps bug bites, but now i am wondering if these are related or if the fever she has had is the cause. the red bumps dried up and went away. she is always putting her hands in her mouth and biting her nails so she could have picked up anything!

These white bumps on the lower lip looking like febrile blisters which are commonly associated with fever. Nothing to worry as these will get dried and scab formation occurs and heals gradually. Because of irritation they will try to bite the lesions with nails and it will lead to secondary infection so trim her nails.
