I am not sure about your daughter's diagnosis of her illness from your description. It sounds more like she has had a chest infection following a cold. She has had no previous symptoms of asthma with cough and wheezing [whistling sound] of her chest. Do you have a family history of asthma?Paediatricians usually diagnose asthma based on the history of the complaint, frequent dry cough at night and wheezing on exercise. Also relief of the symptoms when the child is given a bronchodilator with an inhaler such as Ventolin,Asthavent etc.Please discuss this with your paediatrician.
