Hi Cute,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
Your sister seems to be having allergic bronchitis or bronchial asthma.
She should avoid dust and smoke and should not go out to avoid the exposure to pollens which are in the air in springs.
She should get evaluated by an apt physician and there are very good drugs available which would relieve her symptoms.
I Wish your sister a great health!
