It is difficult to be sure about your daughter with the information that you have given here. She may have a problem with worms or she may not be digesting her food properly. Another possible cause is TB. Please take your daughter to be seen by a doctor. It would be best to take her to a paediatrician. If necessary you can take her to the nearest paediatric out-patients department so that she can have the proper tests done.
