Give it time: He is on the appropriate meds. You need to give them time to work. You need to make sure he stays well hydrated, and can try letting him breathe in the steam of a hot shower to see if it helps.

Honey: Of study was done on children older than age 2 and found that 2 teaspoons of honey at night help decrease the cough. Remember the cough is the body's natural defense mechanism to clear the infection out of them also. Don't use honey in a child under the age of 1. T.
