Hi,
Thank you for your query,
Is there any nausea or vomiting sensation?
Is her sleep was proper in the night without any disturbance?
Is the child is fussy or irritable?
Two year old child can't express verbally if they have nausea or headache, but become dull or fussy and they try to sleep or restrict their activity.
You can give one dose of Tylenol in prescribed dosage.
Try to give plenty of oral fluids like juices.
If the child continues to be dull, consult your Pediatrician for further evaluation.
Hope I have answered your query.

Hi
Thanks for your query,
Your daughter is having cough with running nose which is mostly viral in nature and takes few days to subside,
Lethargy and loss of appetite is a part of illness.
Relax,give her plenty of fluids,fruit juice,glucose water,coconut water,vegetable soup.
Do not force her to eat.
Her appetite will resume in a day or two.
She should take take rest.
For cold and cough you can give some antiallergic in prescribed dosage.

Wishing your child good health.
God bless
