Chets infection: It could be a simple viral infection that has a residual ongoing cough or its possible that its now developing into a bacterial infection. You need to visit your doctor who can examine your daughters chest to see if she needs antibiotics at this stage. You can also try simple home remedies such as steam inhalation or ginger and honey mixtures to soothe the throat irritation.

Good: Idea to take her to the doctor. Warm fluids, decongestant and expectorant will be helpful
