Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
No need to give antibiotic directly because she is not having fever.
Better to take her to doctor and get done clinical examination of respiratory system.
If she is having wheezing on Auscultation then possibility of bronchitis is more likely.
Then she will need inhaled bronchodilators (formoterol or salmeterol) and inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) (budesonide or fluticasone).
So don't give any drug directly, first diagnose and then start appropriate treatment.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wishing good health to your daughter. Thanks.
