Airways inflammation: Is what she probably has, upper airways affection causing the blocked nasal passages and possibly sinus affection, and lower airways inflammation manifested by cough and wheezing, especially at night. Try to identify triggers: smoking, pets, dust, pollens, etc..she'll need good evaluation, see her doctor or an allergist, if you have access to.Meanwhile,saline nasal washes,bronchodilators, goodluck
