I can understand your concern . I have seen many cases of recurrent urti infections in my clinic and it's usual for this age. these infections are mostly viral so try to avoid excessive use of antibiotics chest X-ray is not need yet .so I suggest
1.boost her immunity by giving her fresh fruits and vegetables .
2.steam inhalation twice as day specially at night and morning to decrease congestion of nose
3.use saline nasal drops(salt water) which are easily available so you can use it frequently .
4.avoid take her out in early morning and dusty places
5.you can also use anti histamine (cetrizine)
hope she gets well soon and remain healthy .
thanks
