Probably viral: Unless she has influenza (which she may given the season, but not likely from her symptoms), there are no specific treatments for her. Soup, rest, and TLC are helpful.

See her doctor: Antibiotics will not help a viral illness, if that's what she has. If she feels she has more than a cold (which will improve with rest, fluids, decongestants, etc) she needs to see her primary care doctor for an assessment and suggestions. Since we don't know her whole history (including allergies), and have not examined her, we on healthtap can't recommend particular antibiotics.
