It is not uncommon to have residual symptoms after an upper respiratory infection.  If she does not improve soon or she starts having signs of an infection (fever, pain, drainage), she should see a physician.  Using saline nasal spray multiple times a day can also help wash away the mucus in the nose.  Decreasing the inflammation in the nose will help the eustacian tubes open more easily and help equalize the pressure in the middle ear.  Take care.
