This sounds like a problem called tracheitis which is a common problem after a recent viral repiratory infection. It is very difficult to treat and sometimes it is necessary to use a short course of cortisone. First try Aterax Syrup 5ml at night for a week and see if this helps. If it does not it may be be necessary to consult his paediatrician again.
