Your little girl is coughing a lot especially at night. Fortunately her chest XRay is clear. She may well have asthma as this is the way asthma usually starts in young children. Please take her back to your doctor and mention that you wrote to Health24 and that asthma appears to be the most likely cause for your little daughter's cough.
