Kennel cough is often a frustrating thing to experience as often the more they cough the worse it gets. Benylin can certainly be used but is is not licensed for use in animals. The disease itself is caused not only by bacteria but by a few viruses so antibiotic may not always be indicted. Unfortanately you will not be able to get antibiotic with out a script. There various Herbal/Homeopathic products (eg the ECO-range) that you can use and are readily availabe at most vets. If you are worried rahter take him to your Vet. There is also a Vaccination against Kennel cough that will reduce the spread of the disease.
