Thanks Jodi for that response. Approximately 2 months now. Its more severe in the night, whenever she is awake. We are in the hot season right.

What sort of cough is it? My daughter gets a nighttime cough in the winter that never responded to anything, and we had her checked. It turned out to be asthma. We now treat her for asthma and the cough isn't an issue anymore. It may be worth talking to the doctor about the possibilities.

Also, it depends on when you mean by a long time. It could also be a mild form of whooping cough. Both my daughter and I had this a while back and it went on for a few months.
