Paediatrician

This is very difficult because what is needed here is a proper diagnosis of your son's illness. He may have a viral illness called bronchiolitis or he may have reflux. Another possibility is whooping cough. It would be in your son's best interests for him to be seen by a paediatrician. If you cannot afford private care then your should take him to your nearest state hospital with a paediatric department.
