Brief Answer:
Likely to be due to a viral infection

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Health care magic.

I have gone through your question and understand your concern. Most often such symptoms occur due to certain viral infections. Irrespective of treatment, it usually lasts for 5-7 days. If she is otherwise active and playful you need not worry. Give her Crocin when needed. Give her Cetirizine to take care of the running nose.

Please be patient. She will soon be fine. However, if she becomes lethargic you will have to rush her to a hospital without delay.

Thanking you
