Brief Answer:
Get done PFT.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on HealthcareMagic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of bronchitis is more likely.
So better to take her to doctor and get done clinical examination of respiratory system and PFT (Pulmonary Function Test).
If PFT shows obstructive defect then she will need inhaled bronchodilators (formoterol or salmeterol).
