Read labels: You can read the labels of the over the counter meds and give her either one of the meds as directed. If her symptoms persist, then take her to the dr. For continuity of care. Best wishes.

Yes but: I suspect that her headache may be from nasal congestion which loratadine has no effect on. Consider trying a nasal steroid for a few days and see if this works better. Yes you can give her Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin but it will not be that effective if the nasal congestion is causing the problem. If no response to nasal steroid, see your doctor.
