Needs evaluation: If "everyone in the house has it" it is likely an infection. Viral infections are pretty contagious and a very common trigger of asthma. A "barky cough" is a common symptom of croup which is caused by a virus. A cough that is productive of mucus could be related to asthma, bronchitis or even pneumonia. Take the whole gang to the doc.
