My two year old has been coughing upon waking for 3 months now.

One doctor said it's allergies and give her Claritin. That didn't work. Another said antibiotics and another said Singulair. That didn't work. Then she said an inhaler. We're hesitant but the coughing has been going on too long. Any suggestions? We already tried everything allergy related; locked the pets out of her sleeping room, bought an air purifier, cool mist humidifier, wedge pillow, nose drops, vacuumed the mattress, washed linen in hot water, changed the air filter but to no avail. It's not just the house b/c she coughs upon waking even away from home.

Maybe look into getting referred to a sleep specialist. It could be any number of things. She may mostly breath through her mouth which can cause drying out and mucus.
