Hi i did review your concern,
I would advice you to consult a pediatrician and rule out cough variant asthma here. The treatment is beta agonist drugs and inhalers and she will feel much better. Chronic cough can also be due to pertussis infection in which case she will need cough suppressants.
I hope this helps
Let me know if you have any more questions for me
Wish you and your daughter a very good health.
