He does not need any asthma medicines at all as these will not help his cough.Betanoid is a strong cortisone medicine. Tell the doctor that your son has a form of whooping cough. Ask him to prescribe Aterax Syrup 5ml at night. Sometimes this cough can last for longer than 3 months so it needs to be treated early.
