The cause. You need to know the cause before you can treat an illness. Our information suggests that your cough may be from post-nasal drips. Daily saline irrigation 1 to 2 x daily on the nose may reduce the cough. If you are allergic to outdoor allergens, staying in an air-conditioned room during the pollen season may help. Pets may be a problem. No home remedies has been found to be that effective.
My 6 months old son started to have wet cough and runny nose. I tried the nasal saline but it doesn't help much. Is there anything else I can give him?
Limited options. For infants, there are few medication options to deal with the common cold. Since infants need to breathe through their nose, the nasal saline is a good idea and using it with a bulb syringe (nasal aspirator) will help evacuate the mucus. Previously used cough and cold medications had more risks than benefits. If this were allergies, consider zyrtec syrup and if he improves, see allergist. Read more...

The inner membranes of the nose can swell & constrict the nasal passages increasing the noise & vibrations.A kids general play activity is a good gauge of how sick they are, so this sounds minor.
