Toddler has red cheek, puffy face, clear runny nose, immense drooling, streaming eyes, loud breathing. Cause?

My toddler 18 months has a red cheek (looks sunburnt) and her face is very puffy (especially her upper lip ). She has a clear runny nose , won t eat and can t seem to close her mouth....lots of drool. Very irritable and sometimes streaming eyes. Doesn t look like the teething process to me. Loud breathing(congested) and very bad breath the last two days. It s almost like she doesn t know she is s just hanging. Whereas normally with teething she wipes it off.....almost like her mouth is numb.

Thank you for your query.

The description provided by you suggests that your daughter is having upper respiratory tract infection for which you should give some decongestant syrup. These symptoms are not due to teething as suspected by you. In case there is no improvement then she should be shown to your doctor for further management.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
