Hi...your daughter appears to be suffering from chronic alveolitis...which is a common viral condition in children...get a chest X ray done...and start giving your daughter plain saline nebulisation...which will help in production of sputum and clearing of chest...you can start giving her syrup bromhexiene 5ml thrice a day...make sure the diet of your children is balanced and you can start giving oral zinc suspension to both of your childre as it will help in boosting of immunity.
