Thanks for posting your query.

1) Kindly answer the following details:
a) Presence/ absence of fever
b) Respiratory difficult along with cough.
c) Sounds coming from chest.
d) Presence/ absence of chest pain.

2) Presence of dry cough may be due to exacerbation of asthma (for which doulin & flohale was advised) or may be due to simple viral infection.

3) You should consult with pediatrician and go for thorough check up.

4) A simple asthmatic condition may become worse after a viral infection, so don't get panic. Your son may need extra medicine for control of all symptoms.

5) You should also go for chest x XXXXXXX pulmonary function test for confirmation of disease.

Put your query if you have.

Best regards,

Dr. Mayank Bhargava
