Coughing 18 month old

Morning doc!

My little girl of 18 months have this very irritating dry cough...
All night, and also during the day!
We think it might be the teeth, because there is nothing else wrong....

We nebulised her with pulmicort, gave have cough syrup - bisolven, and rubbed Karvol on her chest, and nothing seemed to help?!

Any ideas to help her with the cough??

Thanks you so much!!

The cause of this kind of cough could well be asthma. Please ask your paediatrician to see your child and ask specifically about asthma.
