hi,thanks for query.She must be having bronchitis may be viral or due to some infection.Give her something warm to drink like soup etc,give her steam inhalation that will also help.Avoid cold drinks and spicy foods.Five her fever medication with cough formula that will definitely help.If this lasts for couple of days,please visit your primary care physician.

Welcome to Hcm
Excessive cough can cause chest pain in children.antitussive cough syrups may just suppress the cough and expectorants may provide some relief but the most important is to know its cause and severity which could be viral bronchitis to bacterial its best to consult your doctor who can examine n start treatment .Till then you can giv her steam inhalations and warm salt water gargles for relief.
