Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar and I am pleased to assist you.
If you have questions after reading my answer, be sure to let me know.

Your daughter is having signs of infection. A complete blood count and a chest xray may be done for evaluation. The color of sputum indicates a probable bacterial infection. She may need a good antibiotic like Augmentin.

Regarding your other query about alcohol inhalation, alcohol does not damage lungs. So you need not worry about it.

I hope that answers your query.
