Check her throat, because this might be tonsillitus

dd had tonsilitis so often that I recognise the smell but couldn't describe it. Dos she have fever? If she isn't eating, has a white tongue and especially if she throws up, I would suspect tonsilitis too.

Sometimes a virus can give you an ugly smell too.
