Pediatrician 's  Response

Would like to know whether your child had similar cough earlier?
Whether she required nebulisation on and off in the past few years?
Did she have fever with cough?

What I would suggest is to get her examined thoroughly and run few investigation like a blood ,chest x ray and Mantoux test.If the results come normal then your child could be suffering from allergic bronchitis or asthma for which she would require bronchodilator and steroids .So kindly get in touch with a good pediatrician for thorough examination and investigation.

Take care.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Cough lasting more than a moth needs an X-ray

If infection, the organism might not be sensitive and a change of antibiotic may be needed

If asthma (seems so from your description) - switching over to nebulisers may deliver proper doses and help / Steroids - nebulised or otherwise - may help...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
