My 8 year old daughter became pale during a strep infection about a month ago. Her color has since not returned and now she has the flu. Took her to the doctor for blood work and are now awaiting the results. Could this be anemia? What causes it?

  • im no professional but have been reading up on anemia seen as my doctor had diagnosed me with it but now has said was a mistake. paleness could also indicate a vitamin d deficiency, b12 deficiency or it could be anemia or a combination of some or all. the reason that i am so pale is due to vitamin d deficiency, does your daughter get a lot of sun? vitamin d is created with skins exposure to sun. again i am no professional but those are just a few ideas.
