phlegm in asthma

Hi! I have a 6 year old daughter who is suffering from asthma from the age of 5, she gets mucus around her airways evry 2-4 months which triggers off coughing and eventually asthma. In order to prevent an asthma attack as soon as the coughing starts I take her down to the GP who prescribes antibiotics and after one week she is her normal one again. I am very, very concerned about all the antibiotics my daughter is taking, the damage they causing to her gut and flora does anyone know of any complementary remedy that can help to the removal of mucus or prevent it? I just can't believe that my poor daughter will carry on taking antibiotics all her life, Doctors can't help and I am desperate to find something. Please if anyone has ever experienced my same problem with their child let me know, my e-mail is: Many thanks. S Fanchi
