  • well has anything changed at all. certain foods, meds, even laundry detergant. It could be a number of things or just a cold...I always say if your in the least bit confused call the docter lol...good luck hope everything is ok

  • Could be anything. I would take her to the doctor to rule out an ear infection or bacteria infection. If she has a cold there is not much you can do. You can use saline drops and a bulb syringe to clear her nose out, and Tylenol for any fever. Good luck.

  • I think it's called a "cold".

  • Usually allergic reactions cause rashes. My son was allergic to a few things and he didnt cough or sneeze, he just got a rash.
