Brief Answer:
Duolin better but with oxygen

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
I understand that your child has wheezing and coughing.
Duolin is better as it has both bronchi dilation and large airway dilation by ipratropium.
But let me warn you - Avoid nebulization without oxygen at home . It can make wheezing worse.
Always nebulise with oxygen in a clinic or hospital nearby with oxygen facility.
If still not improving she may need consultation by Pediatrician.
Wishing your child speedy recovery.

Brief Answer:
Needs examination

Detailed Answer:
Continuous cough could be wheezing or throat infection especially with fever as you mentioned.
Needs clinical examination to confirm signs.
Avoid giving cough syrups on your own without getting her examined.
One nebulization to see if she improves is harmless compared to giving cough syrups without checking her.
