Thanks for all this additional information.

I understand your concern.

You should take some self-care measures until you see her doctor.
Do steam inhalation and saline gargles.
You should give the Over the counter Sodium chloride 0.9% nasal drops 10ml (for children) and Ephedrine Nasal Drops 1.0% 10ml for relief of nasal congestion.
You should give Calpol.
You should hydrate her with warm liquids.
Start a multivitamin supplement and vitamin C lozenges.
Elevate her head while lying down.

Use a humidifier in her room.

If her symptoms will persist then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.
