From your description she seems to have a viral infection, probably one caused by the RS virus which affects the chest in this way, causing an illness called bronchiolitis. Keep her nose clear with infant saline nose drops twice daily and give her Reuteri drops as probiotic to boost her immune system. Give her Panado for discomfort and fever. She will settle down and get over the illness by herself.
