Hi.
Petechiae are skin manifestations of bleeding.  There could be a relation between the two symptoms she is experiencing, and may be a result of a hematologic problem.
It would be best to bring her to her doctor for evaluation.  A complete blood count with platelet count, and bleeding parameters may be needed in order to find out what is causing her problems.
Please do post your updates.
Good luck.
