Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

The original complaint certainly sounds like it was Kawasaki's disease. The ongoing problem is a different condition. It could be due to an auto-immune condition. In any case she needs to see an expert paediatrician. If you would please write again and tell me in which city you live, I will recommend the best person to see her.
