I totally agree with you ,one would panic since the fever has gone above 10days.If your child has taken 2 shots of chicken Pox then this infection is unlikely to be chicken pox.Your child probably might be having fever with rash due to some other virus or bacteria which needs to assessed.Since your kid is sickle cell anemic the chance of her getting infection which flares up are high.So i agree with you it would be better to get her investigated at the earliest.
Take Care.
