Your baby appears to have a viral infection probably starting off as a cold and now involving her chest as well. It is difficult for me to judge how ill she is with your description here. If she is able to sleep and feed well then all you need to do is to keep her nose clear by using Salex nose drops twice a day until she is better.She should be over her illness after 7 to 10 days.
