    Take her back to the emergency room. She could have whooping cough which could kill her. Please don't delay. Take her in and have them test her for whooping cough.

    Use a vaporizer to keep the air around her moist. If it gets very bad and she has trouble breathing go into the bathroom, shut the door and turn on the shower so that the steam fills the room. That usually helps. If it does not go back to the hospital.
