Poor little girl, it's awful when they're sick I love euky Bear (like Vicks) I'll put that on my girls chest and also on the soles of their feet with socks on. Don't know if the feet works but I do it anyway. The Fess nose spray can also help with snotty nose.
Hope she's feeling better soon.

Yep I'm the same, when my kids were little I did fess and euky bear. I also have a cold water air purifier so the room doesn't get steamy like a vaporizer, but it definitely seems to make a difference!
Hope she's feeling better soon!

Get a Nose Frida nose sucker they are amazing and the only thing I've found that really clears the nose out. They cost about $15 at terry white chemist. Much better than the traditional bulb aspirators. It's a bit gross as you literally suck the snot out with your mouth (don't worry there's a filter to stop it) but it really works.
I also use Flo baby nasal spray to loosen the mucous then suck it a few minutes later.
I have an ultrasonic vaporizer which I run with a couple of drops of euky bear inhalant. The ultrasonic vaporizer doesn't cause condensation in the room which can cause mould.
Also lots of Panadol.

Euky bear is great I bought some today and forked out $100 for an electric nose sucker. I couldn't even use the Frida one just the thought makes me gag, even though I know it doesn't go in your mouth.

Vaporiser, saline nose spray and chest rub. I loved the snot sucker but go easy on it. Apparently you can damage their sinus tissue if done too hard / often.
