This kind of cough in young children is often the first sign of asthma. Please ask your doctor to see your little daughter. In the meantime continue to try to keep her nose open with the Salex drops.

My 4yr old was coughing a lot at night and I was told to give him Pholtex. It did help. Not sure if you can give that to a 2yr old. Good luck.
