Brief Answer:
Dry cough

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Based on your description it appears that your baby is suffering from dry cough. Such coughs are usually due to irritation in the throat.

The best and safe treatment is to give steam inhalation with Eucalyptus oil in it for three times a day for two days.

Do continue the other medications you are giving him.
