I agree with the pp. If you've reported her symptoms and your ped isn't asking to see her then it seems that she's comfortable with what's happening. There is a lot going around right now and it sounds like she has a bug. My question is always what you can do that falls between wait and see or go to the doctor?
There are a variety of home remedies that can be employed as well as homeopathic remedies, cell salts, flower essences and nutritional intervention. This would be the perfect time to support your little one and facilitate healing.
Just from your post I would be doing garlic poultices on her feet, to help with the mucus and fever.
I'd use ferrum phos and kali mur cell salt (granted I don't know the whole picture...just giving an impression) For homeopathy I'd consider doing an acute of pulsatilla depending on how runny the nose was and what color the mucus is. Based on the clinginess and the changability of symptoms that'd be my first choice.
Chestnut bud and scleranthus flower essences can be excellent for weird, changeable symptoms and walnut can help kids break through the illness. Crab apple is great for most any illness as it helps clear things out.
For nutrients I'd think about increasing vitamin A and D. I may even add some glutathione or vitamin C. Elderberry extract can also be very helpful and often tastes pretty good. I tend to put some zinc in the elderberry. All of these things will her support her body as it works to fend things off.
You have a lot of options at your fingertips! This is just off the top of my head. There's plenty of other things you could do as well. If you like the idea of natural care, this is the perfect time to start.
