Larger dose: Try a non-sedating antihistamine up to 4 x daily ( yes much larger than what is used for hay fever). If this does not help. you may add a H2 antagonist such as Pepcid (famotidine) or ranitidine twice daily. If this happens only at home or at school, then there is something in that environment causing the hives. Consult an allergist if the above measures didn't help.

Possibly: Flu can include: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, extreme fatigue, and sometimes vomiting and diarrhea. If progresses and worsens, respiratory distress and worse. Colds can have the same but usually not extreme fatigue, muscle aches and chills.

Decongestants: Oral Pseudoephedrine is the most effective pill, but oral phenylephrine is the most available, because you do not have to have a driver's license handy to identify yourself when purchasing it. Both can disturb sleep. So at night a lot of people choose topical decongestants, for example afrin, (oxymetazoline) Vicks spray, 4-way spray, etc. Those sprays can be addicting. Spray antihistamines work well if allergic.

Several suggestions: Evaluate your routine to determine how long it takes before the discomfort begins. This will help you determine when to stand and stretch, do isometric exercises, or a combination of both. Evaluate your chair and if possible, obtain one that has at least three adjustment. Seat height, armrest, and lumbar.

Blisters under: Toenails are quite common in sports participants. If you're able to drain it, apply a topical antibiotic and wrap it in a band aid, that's about the best you can do short term. You might want to check on the size of the soccer boots. If too small, they can be making things worse. Also, i hope the coach/trainer has them wearing running shoes for the pure running workouts.

She might try wearing two pair of socks on each foot and see if that helps. This was something I was taught back in high school by my coach and it worked for me. ( to prevent the blisters, not treat them.)

Doc needs to examine: Many skin conditions are difficult to diagnose without being seen. Some preventive measures: take warm showers (hot ones strip natural oils; baths do likewise); moisturize immediately after shower; if in sun or wind, moisturize & use sunblock; avoid strong soaps/body washes.
