Thanks for posting your query.
There is possibility of Asthma as it may be allergic in origin and a common disease for her age.
You should go for Pulmonary function test, if possible. You should also go for chest X XXXXXXX complete blood count. If Eosinophil level is increased then there is risk of allergy.
You should also consult with pediatrician and allergy specialist.
Put your query if you have.
Best regards,
