Q.

3 month cought

Hi. My son is 2yrs and 8 months. He has been suffering from a cough for 3 months now. We have already been to 4 different doctors who all diagnosed him with flu, but the medication will get finished and the cough will stay. I have also tried self medicating him with cough syrup that I buy over the counter.
I have a humidifier and that has also made no difference. I was advised to take him to the hospital to get his lungs/chest drained because it is full of mucus.
I don''t know what to do anymore and would like some advice.
