Dear Karaminprize you mentioned your daughter got congenital spherocytosis and
got blistery spots in her back and neck. It sounds like she got a viral infection.
As you know viral infection may lead to haemolytic cricis in persons with sperocytosis.
It may come quite abruptly. I think you should take her to hospital. Kindest regards
