If it's a night especially it could be post nasal drip from a cold or allergies that triggers the coughing. Do you have a humidifier in her room? Dry air can also cause a cough at night. If the inhaler is for asthma then you can have a dry unproductive cough from having asthma alone.

I agree with PP, could be allergies, we just moved from CA to GA and my 4 y/o had the same thing. The doctor recomended a cool mist humidifier and allergy medicine...worked like a charm.

Could be allergies. Get a humidifier.
Also you can try Zarbees cough medicine. It's a honey based syrup. It helps coat the throat and lessen coughing.

My son is going through almost the same thing. The cough and runny nose. The nebulizer machine helps. I hope your little one feels better soon.

Is she using an inhaler because she's been tested and diagnosed with asthma?
