Your son probably has whooping cough as there is an epidemic of this illness this year.This is the most likely cause for his cough which you describe as not improving with any medicines or cough mixtures. This cough usually lasts for about 3 months so you can expect him to start to get better quite soon. Unfortunately it is now far too late to use any medicines as these need to be precribed by the doctor when the cough first starts.
