Hi,
I am a pediatrician,
I would advise giving her some steam inhalation (in the bathroom after running a hot shower for a few minutes), and gently putting some nasal drops in her nose on a regular basis to give her some relief.
You may also try giving her some Tylenol drops for reducing irritability,
