It appears that your little son has a nasal infection probably due to enlarged and infected adenoids. This leads to a post nasal drip which causes your son's coughing and chest infections. He would benefit from seeing an ENT specialist for an opinion on his possible enlarged adenoids.t the same time the specialist will see if his tonsils are also enlarged and infected.
