10 year old has cough for 9 years

My ten year old daughter has had a cough every year that can last for months when she gets it and its not just in the winter it happens in the summer too.Its all day long and even wakes her up because she cant breath. The school keeps calling me saying her coughing is disrupting the other kids and i know she feels embarrassed about it. It started when she was about a year old she had the croup and was put in the hospital for three days inside a tent and i think this cough has something to do with that. We have taken her to the dr every time she has the coughing spell but he just keeps saying it is just a cough give her cough medicine and it will go away and it never works. Its a dry cough and she has no other symptoms with it just coughing that ends up making her throat sore. Does anyone have any ideas on what this could be or what i should try. I tried to get the dr to refer us to a specialist but he says there is no need they cant do anything more than him. I really need help to find her help. If you have any advise please tell me!
