In brief: See Dr. today if...

99.2 is not a significant fever.
The most likely cause of these symptoms in a 6 mo.Old is bronchiolitis, a viral infection that is self-limited and does not respond to antibiotics. Keep her well-hydrated. A humidifier may help. See your doctor (or go to er) if it seems she is not getting enough air. See http://kidshealth.Org/parent/infections/lung/bronchiolitis.Html#. Also see my comment.

It seems like you are understandably anxious; it can be scary when your baby is sick, but try to stay calm- when you are anxious it will make your baby anxious. Hold her as much a s possible as that will likely comfort her. Homeopathy & herbal treatments may be helpful- see www.herbs2000.com/disorders/bronchiolitis.htm & http://dr-batras.blogspot.com/2010/12/childrens-illnesses-homeopathy.html
