Your ped docter is treating him for allergic conjunctivitis and hence he thinks the cough to be allegic too.May be he is right.You can go ahead with the honey medication see if that preparation soothes him .If it fails to do so , his night sleeps get distrurbed,he vomits while coughing and he gets fever then i guess the cough will hav aggravated and you need to follow up for cough again with the dr to rule out wheezy chest or infection.
take Care.
