Get medical care: Your daughter needs to see a doctor. If she has all those symptoms she may have pneumonia and will need to be treated. If she is breathing rapidly or with difficulty she will need medical care. In most instances, ventolin/ albuterol syrup has fallen out of favor as treatment for asthma and wheezing.
