Hi and thanks for the query,
She might need to be seen again by a doctor. The antibiotic might not have been very effective, or she might just require a cough syrup. Other causes of cough especially in children like asthma should be considered. A chest X ray and a clinical review by her doctor are useful. Kind regards
