Need more info: What you describe sounds like she is coughing so hard that she has what is called "peticheae" (tiny bleeds into skin) on her forehead. It needs to be evaluated by your doctor right away. Pertussis infection comes to mind, which would be concerning at her age. Seek medical attention and/or go to er. If she is breathing heavy, is not feeding well or "looks sick" you should go to er tonight.

Mgt/M.D. visit: I would advise a visit with your doctor and discussing a test for pertussis, RSV and respiratory viruses. Most uncomplicated colds will resolve within 10 days. It is also important to keep her well hydrated and to check her temperature. At this age, babies have not yet been fully immunized.
