Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question
The fever and sweating indicates infection
The chest pain could be a heart infection (pericarditis) or pneumonia and just be presenting in the heart area
You absolutely have to take her to the ER right now. No doubt about it
