Your son has a form of whooping cough called 'parapertussis'. This is a very difficult cough to treat and can be long lasting, sometimes as long as 3 months in duration.Antibiotics do not help, nor will Deselex or the Singulair. He would do best on an old fashioned antihistamine called Aterax syrup. The dose is 2.5ml at night. Speak to your pharmacist.
