My youngest daughter had RS Virus at 3months old, she was hospitalized for it. Our respi. therapists in the hospital when she coudn't be calmed down just said to let her by cranky, fussy and they took their time and held the nebulizer tube with out a mask under her nose or switched at different times to her cheek and just took their time and followed her moving about like that.
I know some moms have worn animal face masks themselves and on lovey toys too to get treatments done. The easiest way I found to give her oral meds was to use a med syringe with a very very long think tubing in her mouth through which liquid meds were easier dispensed cuz the tubing went further in mouth, than typical oral med syringe.
Also applesauce with a touch of med per spoon not all liquid or crushed pills in applesauce entirely, just touch of meds per spoonful were much easier for my dd.
she's now 17 yo w/asthma. Try the cm RSV grup.
