Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

At your daughter's age, she would be expected to have up to nine colds per year as she builds up her immunity.
Allergies and cold virus can cause similar symptoms such as nasal congestion, runny nose, sneezing and cough.The difference may be: a fever may occur with a cold,
(2) a cold should last no more than 2 weeks while allergies may last longer as long as the person is exposed to the allergen,
(3) colds are associated with feeling tired and achy,
(4) the mucus in the allergies is usually clear while it may be yellow in the common cold

You may want to consider starting her on vitamins , particularly vitamin C to boost her immunity.In addition it has been found that the use of probiotics which are found in yogurt can also help with immunity.

I hope this helps
