Child with chills, leg pain, light purple lips followed by fever post swimming. Had inhaled a bit of water. Cause?

We just got home from a house party where our daughter was swimming in a swimming pool. She s 4 1/2 years old. When she got out she was very very chilly and it took her a while to warm back up- she was even complaining of her legs hurting when she was shivering really bad. About 30 minutes later her lips were still slightly purple even though she had warmed up. Our drive home took an hour. She fell asleep in the car and when we came in the house she felt warm. She was running a fever of 103 under one arm and 102.1 under the other. She did inhale a little bit of water at one point.

Allergist and Immunologist 's  Response
sometimes in cold temp the blood circulation is decreadsed and
no link with water drop intake
but be sure and get tests for heart as there can be mixing of blood pure and impure
try not to go to temperature below 25 degree centigrade
maitain temperature out side between 25 to 49
even the things intake should be in between these temperatures
if shee still hase fever you can give disprin 75 mgm twice a day
keep her warm
apply thrombophob on legs
and get all the tests done for heart
