Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It is clear that your daughter is bleeding more than normal and seems like a coagulation problem. I would recommend you to do coagulation tests , platelete count, tests for factors VIII ,IX and von Willebrand, and fibrinogen. Also you can set an appointment with a haematologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
