Blood clot: Your daughter has a viral throat infection.However, much ore troubling is her bloodcloi which requires immediate attention.Take her to the ER for further evaluation and treatment

Another option: Coughing with chest wall pain is commonly due to Musculoskeletal pain. Apply local heat to the rib cage and use Motrin to control the pain. She will need a D Dimer test and evaluation of her knee, cough and sore throat. The latter two symptoms may be due to a viral illness. Monitor her temperature, rest and fluids are suggested. Please see Pediatric urgent care or the Emergency room.
