  • When in doubt, consult her doctor.

  • Has she been pulling on her ear? My dd had the same symptoms I took her to the doctor and she had an ear infection. Hope she feels better.

  • Normally, I would suggest just trying to give her liquids and infants tylenol.. but I was just at the pediatrics last night with 2 of my little ones..and was told that type A & B flu are out bad. The whole office is full, and the school my kids attend have had several cases. My daughter has type B flu right now..and the doctor said my son most likely had it earlier this week & its almost ran its course. I would take her to the doctor. It might not be the flu, but she could also have maybe an ear infections..which is caused by congestion.
    Take care!

  • There might be something in the air that is causing her to cough and sneeze. Does someone in the house smoke?
