Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Looking tired and pale doesn't warrant blood tests.Give her a lot of fluids and ORS if possible.Allow her to take rest for a few days.Post flu fatigue is pretty common at this age.Do not panic.If she has anemia then probably a blood test might help.Hope this answers your query.Wishing your child a speedy recovery.Have a nice day.
