Is she still using bottle to drink milk ? If yes then please stop it immediately. Use Colgate Bubblegum flavor paste for kids as it had fluoride in it which is adequate for children.

Please get her cavities filled and give her less of sweets and essentially at a gap of 3-4 hrs to maintain the correct ph of saliva. Medicines and toothpaste will not stop d damage. They will just relieve her pain. Pls make her brush twice daily to prevent further damage. Be careful now as she may b having her permanent teeth eruption.
