You are welcome.It seems to me that your little son has been left with tracheitis [inflammation of his trachea] following his recent croup episode. The main thing is that he is happy and is eating well. You do need to clear his nose with regular nasal saline use to stop any post nasal mucous drip.It is a pity that he only had 2 days of the short-acting cortisone as this is the only treatment that really helps for tracheitis. The cough in tracheitis is very irritating and may last for up to 6 weeks. Nebulising him will certainly help to relieve his cough to some extent. He does not need to see the doctor as long as he is happy and seems well and does not have a fever.
