Cough: Make an appointment to see your pediatrician. In the meantime take him into the washroom and turn on the hot shower. Steam him forv20-30 minutes several times a day. Let him sleep with a vaporizer. Elevate his mattress so he is sleeping on an angle. Get some vapo rub and apply to chest. But it is important to get to see the doctor asap.
