is there any sound comings from chest as she breathes?
User : no
when was her last physical examination by her pediatrician?
User : about a week ago and she told me to give her some cough surpresant and that should work but it didnt
i would suggest a repeat chest examination and a posible x-ray chest along with a ENT or a Pulmonologist opinion for her cough
User : so this may be something serious if not taken care of?
Doctor : it could be serious pointing towards asthma kind of picture
like a 'cough variant asthma' if not getting controlled
