Suffering from terrible cough, loss of appetite, running nose and fatigue. Is it bronchitis?

My 10 yr old daughter is prone to bronchitis . For the last 7 weeks she has had a terrible cough. I took her to her doctor and she said it s just allergies. My daughter s symptoms are as follows: cough sometimes horse, sometimes with mucus , loss of appetite (she s an excellant eater until now), runny nose, and occasional fatigue . She doesn t have a fever or stomach ache. I think it s bronchitis again but her doctor says no. Am I right or is the doctor right? Please help!

Thanks for query.
In this case you both are right ! as it seems that your daughter is having Allegic Bronchitis.
Identify the cause of allergy and avoid it.
It may be due to dust allergy,pollen body allergy or there may be some internal allergy like worm infection,Eosinophilia etc.
Go for blood test for tc,dc,esr.
Go for x ray chest.
After report go for the treatment accordingly.
Ok and bye.
