Thanks for your query.
Common cough & cold symptoms normally last a week to 10 days.
Conjunctivitis is also very common association of common cold.
Can try T-minic syp in appropriate doses & gentamicin eye drops ,1 drop in each eye about 6 times a day. Please clean eyes with water & remove all eye discharge each time before putting eye drops.
If not better in 2-3 days consider visiting your GP.
Hope you find the information useful.

Dear Sir/Madam
Welcome to Healthcare magic
Greetings of the day
It would have been more helpful if coul have mentioned age of daughter. Does she have any skin rash? from the description given she could be suffering from Measles and is infective to other kids. Consult Pediatrician and seek profesional help.
Take care
