It sounds as if your daughter has a very blocked nose due to her bad cold. It is important to clear her nose by using a Salex saline nasal spray twice daily and also a Iliadin paediatric nasal spray twice daily for no more than 5 days. You can stop the Avamys  and Deselex  as these are used for nasal allergy and are not helpful when a child has a bad cold.
