Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.
I am Dr Rakesh Sharma answering your query.
I can understand your concern.
From Your description, your daughter seem to be suffering from seasonal cold and her head ache seems to be due sinus inflammation.
Plain acetaminophen(Paracetamol) and cetirizine should be sufficient in my opinion.
You can avoid vasograin for now, and can continue with antibiotic.
Hope I have answered your query.
If any thing else you are welcome.
Good luck.
