  • How long has she had the cough? Because sometimes it is a lung infection or something like that and they need antibiotics. If it has been more than 2 weeks, and she doesn't seem almost over it, all the Dr.

  • More fluids, less dairy. If the cough lasts longer than 4-5 days, take her to the doctor.
