Post Echinacea for Little Kids

Hi Everyone

My daughter will be 3 in May. She is big for age though and is as tall as a 4 year old. We are leaving for England in 8 days and she woke up with a cold this morning. I've been told that Echinacea might help shorten the life of this cold (I REALLY don't want her travelling with a cold...especially flying with one!!). I see that there is Echinacea out there for kids, but nothing I'm finding is telling me if it's ok for a 3 year old. Has anyone out there used Echinacea on a little one before? Can anyone give me advice on dosages if you've used it? I will call our pediatrician first thing in the morning but was hoping to learn more about it before than.
