Your little son's illness startrted off with a cold and his chest has become infected as well. This infection is probably caused by a virus,so antibiotics will not help.This kind of infection can last up to 3 weeks at a time.It is most important to keep your son's nose clear so that he can breathe through his nose and also to stop any post-nasal drip from aggravating his cough. Use a saline nasal spray such as Sterimar twice a day to clear his nose. Also give him Mucospect 5ml twice a day to help him to cough up the mucus still in his chest.
