Atopy?: This sounds possibly like a combination of eczema and asthma which often go hand in hand. The length of illness doesn't sound like scarlet fever. Would be worth getting her examined by a doctor to make a diagnosis and/or arrange tests plus treatment

Mgt: An inbox consultation and uploaded records/images may assist in your daughter's management. Based on the frequency and types of infections, immune system disorders can be considered. Has she had an evaluation including a work up for CF?
