We are so sorry that your daughter has been unwell with these various infections, we hope that symptoms are easing and she is feeling better.
Tonsillitis is common in children and can often lead to secondary infections including ear infections, sinus infections and chest infections.
There are two main types of chest infections, bronchitis and pneumonia, the latter being what you have said your daughter had. Following a chest infection, sometimes children will develop a viral wheeze, however this is something that usually goes away after a period of time.
It sounds from what you have described that these unfortunate set of illnesses could be linked, however if you have any concerns or the symptoms then you should ask the GP for their opinion on this. If you have private medical cover it may also be possible for you to request a referral to see a Respiratory specialist, who could also review your daughter’s recent medical history.
We hope you have found this information helpful and that your daughter makes a speedy recovery.
