my 4yr old kid suffering for continuous cold and cough

Hi everyone,
We are staying in bangalore. my 4yr old daughter is suffering from cold and cough continuously since 1 year. It started as soon as she joined school. From then she gets cough n cold at least twice in a month. These days it has become very severe. Our native place is visakhapatnam and when we go there she's better and no cough. But as soon as we come to bangalore it all starts again. We have tried almost every medicine in allopathy. Now we r planning to switch to homeo.

The cough slowly starts. she coughs everyday as soon as she gets up from sleep. she coughs in the school and while jumping or playing also she coughs. It slowly increases in the week and by weekend she's completely attacked with cough and cold. She coughs severely and gets up from sleep and coughs until she vomits. sometimes the cough stops after vomiting but these days the cough is still there and after a day she is also getting fever. We have stopped all sweets, icecreams, fruits etc etc. we used to give her montair 5mg. but as long as she took that, the cough would go. I heard that medicine had so many side effects and stopped it. Now the cough has started again. i also give her chyavanprash and himalaya septilin every day but still no change. These days because of the weather, she is getting cough in every 10 days. I don't know what to do, can't see her coughing continuously. She likes ice cream and chocolates a lot, but she also knew if she eats them she will get cough that's why even if someone offer her any chocolate she refuses, but i know that she's sad inside. I couldn't stop my tears then. One doc couldn't help us anymore and even asked us to move to some other place from b'lore. pls help anybody. i am have no idea about homeopathy. Even if we use homeo medicine, pls tell me if it would be temporary or we have to use them till she grows up a bit or permanently. What all tests to be done to know what kind of cough it is. we parents don't have any history of asthma. but my husband's sister has some breathing problem. Please help anybody. I am clueless.
