The doctor really should have examined your baby and as you say in addition went on to prescribe a penicillin-containing antibiotic for your penicillin allergic child and that for a viral infection. You should write a letter to the hospital manager about your experince there.Your baby definitely has a very bad cold from the symptoms you describe so you need to keep her nose clear with the Sterimar and keep her fever down with Calpol. Give her plenty of fluids and don't worry if she won't eat solids while she is rather ill. If she develops any chest symptoms such as rapid breathing or appears to be wheezing ask your doctor to see her.
