Have you been to the doctor? If you need antibiotics, you will get them there. OTC drugs only help to reduce the symptoms until your body can fight off the illness or until a virus runs it's course. If the illness is lingering for more than a couple of weeks, you will need antibiotics to help.

For the most part, you are doing all there is to do--keep her well fed, and take care of yourself. Try to eat lots of fruits and veggies, and make sure you are taking a vitamin. It will pass.

If your worried that shes sick because of you thats not the case shes teething so it causes things like that my 3 month old is teething and has similar symptoms but you should still take her to the doctor also its safe to breastfeed while sick it doesnt effect your baby. I read this from a magazine for breastfeeding moms that i received at my doctors office also i was just recently sick while breastfeeding and it caused no harm to my l/o.
