I would get her seen by a pulmonologist.  She may need to increase her asthma medication or start a preventative inhaler if not on one already.  

Chronic coughs are annoying and she shouldn't have to live with it.  If the cough is due to allergens triggering her asthma, the allergy tests will show what her triggers area and help you change the environment to help that.
