Control nose: The sinus and ear infections are most likely from obstruction of their openings from the allergic rhinitis. The most important step is to decongest the nose (nasal steroid) so that these organs can drain. Just antibiotic alone will not likely provide long-term relief. See an allergist if this has been a recurrent problem.

Multiple symptoms: Many times when person develop multiple symptoms, they seek one unifying diagnosis. Unfortunately, one cause may not be the answer. Seek an opinion for each problem. I would start with the swollen lymph nodes. The evaluation of swollen lymph nodes may be best addressed by a general surgeon who might need to perform a biopsy to establish an accurate diagnosis.

See your Dr: There are a number of possibilities for what could be wrong, some with serious implications. If the rash feels sandpapery, it may have been caused by strep, & could warn of further complications. Your child needs to see her dr, the sooner, the better.

Anxiety: Anxiety can cause all of these symptoms. Nosebleeds can be an indirect effect of anxiety when it also causes an increase in blood pressure. Bodyaches may be related to poor sleep and muscle tension from anxiety. Anxiety can make your throat feel tight and sore. Other medical causes include hyperthyroidism, night time acid reflux, and some rare types of high blood pressure conditions.
