It's possible: If she only has the cough after eating pineapple, it's certainly possible. It would be best to avoid her eating it in the future.

Yes: Most likely this is an allergic reaction to the pineapple. And if it is, the more times she is exposed, the worst the symptoms are going to get. Use loratidine 10mg for post exposure and avoid pineapple or anything that contains pineapple until she is tested.

Possibly: See an allergist and that can be figured out. In the mean time, avoid pineapple!
