Peroxide Humidifier: Do you have a cool mist humidifier? Fill it with one bottle of hydrogen peroxide, and two bottles of water. That will give you a 1% aerosolized mist of hydrogen peroxide. The peroxide kills the bugs on contact (virus or bacteria) as you breath in the mist, and breaks down into water and oxygen. Your daughter should start feeling better in a day or two.

How Long: How long on antibiotics - they take 1-2 days to have effect. Are fever or symptoms worse? Cool compresses or a cool bath could help with the fever. If she is worse, call pediatrician - they should have after-hours or emergency instructions but if not you might need to take her to the ER.
