Pediatrician 's  Response

Her temperature is quite okay.
Since she is sneezing too, antihistamine preparations like PIRITON syrup will help.

It has chlorpheneramine maleate (CPM) in it. Strength of CPM is 2mg/ 5ml.
Check the ingredients and strength of the syrup.
You may give her 2.5 ml twice a day for 3 days.
This medicine can cause drowsiness in your kid.

Check if her activity is normal and food/fluid intake is okay.

Usually cough especially after viral infections can take 3 to 8 weeks for complete cure.

But if you find the cough really distressing/ she is dull/ not taking anything orally- do not hesitate to get your doctor`s help.

Hope my answer helps you.
Wish your daughter good health.
