There must be a reason why your daughter is crying all the time. She may have pain or she may be feeling very ill. The fact that she says that she feels cold may be due to her having a fever or may be part of an infection. She may have a urinary system infection or an ear infection.Another possibility is tick bite fever. Also, depending on where you live, one must always think of malaria with symptoms such as your daughter has now. In any case she needs to be seen by a doctor or clinic nurse.
