Hi Ravina. My elder daughter was also diagnosed with the same problem few months back. She is also alergic. Kids syrup based cough and cold medicines did not help her much. Then I met a very good pedeatrician who prescribed her inhalers (non-steroids) and a tablet (Montier-4, pedeatric) for daily consumption. It really help to improve her condition. She still gets sick with cold and cough but not so frequently. Also her condition is not as severa as before. The doctor has suggested to decrease the dose of inhaler graduall till it can be stoped al togather after periodic consultation. So do not worry. It is not an uncommon problem. And it is treatable. As for allergy you will have to take precautions at home and outside from dust and other things that can lead to sneezing. Consult a good pedeatrician who can guide you properly on the treatment.

HI dear Ravina! Ur description tells she has allergic cough. u cud introduce many changes in child's life style such as 1. Give balanced diet which fulfills all nutritional requirements. 2. give plenty of fluids. 3. avoid cold food items. 4. get tests done to reach correct diagnosis. 5. Physical excercise in the form of play or excercise to increase stamina. All these changes could build immunity and prevent frequent episodes of illness. hope this works!
