Thanks for posting your query.

The runny nose, sneezing all could be due to infection , most probably viral. All you need to do is to clear her nose with saline drops to help her breathe easily.

If there is fever, give her tylenol.

If she is less active, not taking feeds, crying incessantly, having difficulty in breathing, take her to the doctor immediately.

I hope that answers your question.
