they will just tell you to get some over the counter Infant Saline Solution- It is not fun but it will help her be able to breath better. I have also used an aspirator after using the saline solution to get all the boogies out. I hope I helped you.

Baby Vicks on her feet COOL mist humidfire or sitting in bathroom, with door closed and turning on hot water, ( do not get in it) just sit on the potty or floor the steam will help.. That is about all i know that you can do with out speaking with a doctor.. Take Care and Best Wishes... Keep us posted... I really hope this is helpful for you and your little one....
