Your child seems to have been suffering from an upper respiratory tract infection. Tylenol and ibuprofen have no added benefits over tylenol alone.Ibuprofen has its own side effects so give it judiciously.
My advice would be to use a nasal decongestant for the runny nose which is commonest cause for cough at this age. If she coughs pretty bad or has wheeze get a chest X ray done. Otherwise paracetamol,nasal decongestants along with a mild cough syrup should help your baby tide over the problem.Hope you find this helpful.Wishing her a speedy recovery.
