Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You can give her an antihistaminic as Zyrtec drops once before going to bed to relive the runny dose and cough.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My 10 month old son has lost his voice. Low grade fever about 99 to 100 degrees for the last 3 days. Started out with very sporadic caugh which sounded croupy at times. He hardly caughs now, but his little high pitched screams have been muted. What could be going on? He doesn t seem to be in any pain and is his usual playful self.
