Unable to take her temp as we are on our way to airport. If she has a fever it's very low.

Thank you for the input.
I am sorry for her symptoms.
Though we use benadryl in some cases but it needs an examination in person before giving to children of her age.

Sometimes, it can cause side effects.
However, you can give Guafenesin & Tylenol in the above doses.
They can be given together.
Those would help with cough, fever.
Please give her plenty of fluid.
I hope this information will be helpful.
