HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

The fact that the cough is worse in the night and early morning suggest that it is either coughing due to allergies with post nasal drip or due to asthma. One of the most common symptoms of asthma is a night time or early morning cough.

Because asthma is more serious, her doctor may want to consider treating for this condition first. This means that the use of an preventer inhalor may help to decrease these coughing episodes.

You may want to consider speaking to her doctor.

I hope this helps
