Thank you for your query.

I will appreciate if you can update me on the following:
1. Age
2. Temperature, if any
3. Medications, if any

It is not unusual for children having fever, running nose and cough. They may feel like staying in bed. If any cough syrup is being given then some drowsiness does occur.

As the age and weight is not known I suggest that you give her:
1. Cough syrup three to four times a day
2. Paracetamol/acetamenophen syrup four hourly to bring down the fever, if present

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back in case you require any clarifications or would like to update on the status.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
