She needs an ENT evaluation. Throat is the cross-roads of the ENT region. Mucus could arise from nose(&sinuses), adenoids, tonsils, lungs and stomach. Only a prosper examination followed by proper investigations can reveal the source of her cough.

Hai, there are various reasons for cough. She needs evaluation by a chest physician and an ENT. it could be because of undiagnosed asthma or allergic cough or reflux of acid into the throat or some infection in the lubgs.SO kindly take her to a chest physician or an ENT . cough for a long time cannot be neglected.
