Paediatrician

You do not mention your son's age.This kind of cough is often the first sign of asthma in a young child. Your son should be seen by a paediatrician.

get him Croupbron from Natura. You can find it at any healthshop. Our paediatrician even prescribes it for his patients. Works better than any cough medicine!
