Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Your daughter is having a urine infection due to which her TLC is raised and she is having fever. She has to take a broad spectrum antiobiotic to control the infection. Also, her haemoglobin is very low. Put her on regular iron supplments with a high protein diet for at least six months.
