It seems from the history that your daughter is having sunken eyes.
These symptoms and history indicates poornutrition or chronic illness as a pprobable cause.
Hence she requires evaluation to find out the underlying cause.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
