Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Yes, this could be an allergic cough as well , even it could be a viral infection which is more common in kids of that age and they cause such symptoms, the treatment is symptomatic , some anthistaminics and cough syrups may be needed , but make sure the temperature is well under control , avoid exposure to dust and allergens
