Can Montek LC be used for cough and cold in a child?

My daughter has several cough and cold which is occurring very often especially rainy season and winter. She has been taking Montek LC kid from last 10months (Daily one) and no other medicine unless she the cough becomes severe. She is getting better with this, but still not out of the problem. she has high allergy level and doctor says she has wheezing too.. but it is not that observable. We just see her coughing too much. Can you pls tell me if montek lc alone would be able to cure her problem fully?

May need prophylactic nasal/inhaled steroid for 3-6months after assessment if child is more than 2years. U need to consult pediatric pulmonologist.
