Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
You can definitely use carbocysteine if you have tried before. But, I would recommend you to consult a child specialist before starting with the medicines. You can definitely give her plenty of warm water to drink and also help her to do steam inhalation 2-3 times/day which can help in bringing out the sputum.
Take care

Regards
