No I would not give Benadryl. My pediatrician doesn't even recommend it until they are 5 or 6 or children of a larger weight. It can be too sedating. Is she congested nasally? If so, a Nose Frida is a wonderful investment and use a humidifier in her room or a run a hot shower and sit in the bathroom with her with it all steamed up.

Benadryl wouldn't help the cough I wouldnt give it. What I would suggest is moisture whether that be sitting in the bathroom with the shower running or a vapoizer. Just my .02 worth.
