The baby from Rama Kheda village in Bhilwara, was rushed to Mahatma Gandhi Hospital in Bhilwara after her health deteriorated.
A police officer said the girl was apparently branded a couple of days ago, but the matter came to light today when the doctors were informed about it.
The girl was branded on her stomach and was undergoing treatment, a doctor said.
The girl is suffering from pneumonia and congenital heart disease. Cases of superstitious practices like branding to cure from cold and cough is common in Bhilwara. She is undergoing treatment in the ICU ward, in-charge paediatrics at Mahatma Gandhi Hospital, Dr OP Agal said.
